fall session: September 13 - February 3
We offer school pick up and transportation -- please inquire.
Class size is limited to 6 students with an interest in the arts and who can be relied on to be responsible during field trips.
Field trips are T.B.A. - based on gallery and museum programming as well as local artists' availability.
At Essex Street gallery
In this advanced course for older children, students will go on several scheduled field trips to galleries, artist studios, and/or museums throughout the session. On studio days at The Painted Cloud, projects will take inspiration from the artworks seen and discussed on the field trips. Students will create their own concepts and long term projects from start to finish. In this small group format (limited to 6 students), teachers will give individualized assistance throughout the life of each project. Tool skills, techniques, and project-planning strategies will be taught, while experimentation with materials will be encouraged. Students will receive guidance with how to incorporate unexpected results into their artworks and troubleshoot obstacles that arise in their processes.
Students discuss William Wegman's show at gallery Magenta Plains.
