Instructor: Erin Casey
Students explore Michener galleries weekly, and use works in the exhibitions as take-off points for their own art making; they also work from photographs, observation, and imagination. Students will use pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastels, acrylic and watercolor paints, and an array of sculpture materials including air-dry clay and plaster-craft in this program.
