Thursday, April 25, 2024: Spring Nature Painting

Join us in the studio to celebrate Earth Day by exploring your senses through planet friendly painting. Artists will use organic materials such as spices, flowers, and select foods to make their own watercolors and create a nature inspired watercolor painting.

Thursday, May 30, 2024: Surreal Scratch Art

Families are invited to dive into their subconscious through exploring automatism, a technique of creating made popular during the Surrealist art movement which involves creating without any conscious decision making in the process. Visitors will be guided in several exercises and games used by artists to explore their subconscious, then artists will use their findings as inspiration to create a finished artwork using drawing tools to create a surreal scratch art drawing.

This class was originally promoted as Homeschool Art.
