Section II: Ages 13-16: 10:30 am-Noon
Tuition: $60 Members | $75 Guests (materials included)

Students will practice the act of observing through continuous line drawing, drawing upside down, and drawing negative spaces, then begin a still life project to discover how shading and perspective add depth to their drawings. Museum exhibits will be visited each class as we discover connections and gain creative inspiration from the art on display.

Ages 8-12
Fee: $20 Members | $25 Guests (materials included)

Taking inspiration from the exhibition African American Art in the 20th Century and Abstract Expressionist artist Sam Gilliam, students will create an abstract painting from loose canvas. Students will use non-traditional utensils to spread paint and add texture.

Neighborhood Portraits Workshop

Ages: 11 and up
Tuition: $20 Members, $25 Guests (materials included)
Instructor: Hana Velde

Students will visit African American Art in the 20th Century to observe the colors, images, and messages in the artworks on display. We will discuss the importance of neighborhoods in everyday life, how basic needs are met through housing and the food supply, and how interpersonal interactions build a feeling of community. After preparing a canvas board and acrylic paint palette and learning brush techniques, students will create personal expressions of their neighborhood environments.
