Ages 21+ (Adult)
Open Studio Evening
An event designed to satisfy “curiARTsity” and explore the creative process. Participants will be able to sign up for two classes. The first class is chosen upon arrival, and sign ups for the second class will be available after the first class. Registration for both classes are first come, first served. While we want people to be able to take the class of their choice, we also want to expose them to types of art making they might not have considered. It’s similar to being devoted to a literary genre, but one day getting a strong recommendation to read a book in a completely different category and loving it. Sometimes we don’t know what we’ll enjoy until we try it. Demonstrations from teachers, all art materials, hors d’oeuvres, and personalized instruction are all included. A cash bar is also available. Doors open at 6:00 PM for class sign up. Class options include:
Expressive Figure Drawing – Working from a clothed model (a professional dancer) learn how to capture the energy, movement and the proportions of the human form.
Encaustic Painting – Create a small abstract panel with layers of melted wax and colorful ink.
Glass Fusion – Cut glass and assemble a colorful design. Artwork will be fired and students can adhere artwork to a nightlight upon pickup.
Clay – Cut out a slab of clay to the perfect sushi plate size, then learn decorative brush techniques for a one of a kind piece.
Clay Jewelry – Make and paint your own unique clay pendants for a necklace, bracelet, or a set of earrings.
