Kimball Art CenterRegister
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.
Attendees will be able to select two of the following classes:
Small Metals — Create a custom pendant by stamping it with meaningful letters, numbers, or a design.
Printmaking — Using stencils, you’ll learn about the screen printing process to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
Portrait drawing — Working from others in the class, you will learn various portrait drawing techniques while sketching poses using either charcoal or colored pencils
Ceramics —Make and decorate vases from soft clay slabs for a one of a kind centerpiece.
Painting — Discover how to create a watercolor floral with dramatic design, flowing colors, and captivating light and shadows.
Welding — Try your hand at metalworking using MIG welders, torches, cutters, and grinders, to bend, shape, or mold ideas into art.
