We invite YOU to come & FIND YOUR OWN VOICE, to do whatever it is that you want with YOUR VERY OWN ART! Being exposed to some exciting & unusual artists working today & also some masters from the past will provide you with ideas & inspire & motivate you. Demonstrations will include painting, three types of photo transfer, gold & silver leaf, plaster, pumice & crackle gels, & many other new materials. We will be focusing on contemporary art. A WHOLE NEW WORLD of ART will open for you, giving you so many new ideas with which to experiment that it will excite and motivate you to continue. You will have the opportunity to work in a SUPPORTIVE and JOYFUL environment with a highly experienced artist-teacher to become the artist that you are capable of becoming—and have always wanted to be! Most of all it will be FUN!
We are pleased to offer this class online using Zoom video conferencing. The hope is to mimic, as closely as possible, what normally happens in our classrooms at the Athenaeum. Of course it will not be exactly the same, but in this time when many of us are experiencing anxiety and isolation, our hope is to continue to provide enriching experiences of artistic growth and community building, just in a different format.
The technology to make this happen is actually surprisingly simple (imagine a group FaceTime or Skype meeting). You only need a computer (phone or tablet) with a camera, microphone, and internet connection and we are here to help you should you experience any technical difficulties.
