Instructor: Robin Lane
Middle and high school students develop and expand their drawing and painting skills, find new challenges, and discover new avenues for inspiration. Individualized instruction, demonstrations, and exploration in a variety of drawing, painting, and printmaking media are at the core of the Aspiring Artists workshop environment where students find new challenges and work through projects at their own pace. Students will work with pencil, oil pastels, acrylic paint on canvas, monoprints, and linoleum cuts in this class. Individualized instruction will foster self-expression and the development of a personal style. Student work will be exhibited in the Rising Artists exhibition, which opens March 3. Please bring a cell phone or a tablet if you have one.
All of our students explore the 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, and glean inspiration from famous artists throughout history.
Michener classes keep Art at the Heart of Education with individualized attention, small classes, frequent gallery tours, and master teachers as hallmarks of the exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and art materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. The Michener’s permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms in new ways. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year.
Faculty member Robin Lane won the distinguished Lindback Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Ruth Hare Award for Philadelphia’s Central Region, and was honored by Art Reach for her work in their Art in Schools program. She has been with the Michener since 2001.
