Open Drawing Workshop

-

This is a monitored, non-instructional workshop in which artists can work at their own pace in the medium of their selection (no turpentine-based oil paints, please) from a live model in short and sustained poses. Chairs and a limited number of easels are available. Students must provide their own materials. Come as often as you like throughout the year. REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED —just drop in and pay at the door ($12/$10 ACP members). View more information or register.

Start Fresh


Start Fresh

Start Fresh is a group exhibition about clarity, finesse, energy, surprise, nature, healing and defying expectations in art. The exhibit brings together startling and fresh works of art by professional artists, alongside that of participants from seven arts and health programs that engage the community in creative dialogue.

A passionate concern for nature pervades the work of included artists: Polly Apfelbaum, Lindsay Feuer, Susan Hockaday, Natalie Jeremijenko, Melissa Marks, and Scott Wright. To celebrate surprise and renewal in art, students ages 15 to 102 from the Arts Council’s Arts in Healthcare programs have created bold prints as an homage to Mary Granville Delany, an 18th Century botanical artist who began her life’s work at the age of 72.

In her Curator’s Statement, Eva Mantell says, “The six artists selected for this exhibit connect to the themes of renewal and growth in diverse ways. From drawing to painting, photography, ceramics, printmaking, performance art, biotechnology and environmental intervention, the range of media rewinds to art’s origins, and fast-forwards into new technologies, as needed. The artists in this exhibit are trained and skilled. They have finesse and a light touch, and keep their art fresh, honest and relevant.”

Batik Printing: GFS

- $120

FILLED!
Surface design on fabric using the Batik (wax resist) printing method can lead to colorful and complex art pieces.  First, explore the exhibition Rattle by Paul Henry Ramirez to gain inspiration for unique color combinations and fun shapes to create interesting patterns in your work.  Back in the studio, work with master fiber artist Lian Sawires, a Master Silk Artist who creates dramatic wearable art, using soft materials to express movement and emotion, to learn how to use dyes in baths and trays, soy wax, winding, binding and clamping to create visual texture in abstract or geometric patterns.  No prior experience needed! Create three stunning scarves, learn dyeing methods for cotton, silk and rayon, pleating, wrapping, texture, layer dyeing, using wax tools and surface design. Self-expression through dyeing is a wonderful way to explore individual creativity while having fun and producing great same-day results. What you create will amaze you! Bring your own fabrics to add to what is provided – $35 materials fee payable directly to the instructor.
