This class is the perfect opportunity for adults of all abilities to “break out of the box” while combining drawing, painting, printmaking, and collage to create realistic and abstract works of art. Guided instruction and new discoveries will inspire student work in a variety of arts media and processes including monoprints, linocuts, found photography, papers, fabrics, and more. Special Exhibition Focus: Permanent Collection – Modern and Contemporary Art
Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of artists, art forms, and processes. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; most students attend for consecutive sessions. Adult students may choose to exhibit their work in the Education Gallery in June.
