Workshops and Classes

(in the works and on the boards!) Let us know if you are interested in any of these or other ideas here


Mark Making

Art Explorations in Multiple Materials

In this open-ended class we’ll use inspiration from writing, art and music to find our Artist within. We will explore the ideas presented by the different arts to find a thread to connect the drawing, painting and sculpting as part of the experience. Along the way, we’ll learn about contrast, composition, color and line. We’ll use drawing, painting, sculpture and digital work to create.

We’ll be using a subtle ‘theme’ that will thread through each of the eight sessions but the class is structured so a new artist can jump in at any time. The theme is a prompt for artistic vision within these sessions. Through this open-ended approach, we hope to find new truths in the spaces between art and inspiration.
