Service Description

1-day workshop: Saturday, August 10, 9:00am - 12:00pm Ages 18+ In this three-hour class, we will observe and explore each other’s artwork, while learning concepts and techniques that will develop your critical eye as an artist. Honing this skill will help you discriminate between what is working in your creative endeavors, and what may be holding a work of art back from being fully realized. By getting beneath the surface and into the configuration of an artwork, we will explore possibilities for creating deeper and more expressive pieces. We will learn vocabulary for discussing art and explore ideas and directions one may take so the artist’s path isn’t merely an aimless journey. Experienced artist and teacher, Thomas Van Stein, will be your guide in this workshop. Items to bring with you: - Up to three finished works of art (or works of art in progress) Optional items to bring: - Layered clothing, as the temperatures may fluctuate in our building - Bottled water/beverage Scholarships for this and all of our other classes are available for those who otherwise would not be able to attend art classes, thanks to generous donations to our Art Start Fund.
