ADULT ART CLASSES

AGES 18+

Spend your leisure time on meaningful, engaging experiences.

Get away from the monotony of your normal routine and try something new and exciting by participating in one or more of our summer workshops for adults. Add a spark of creative joy to your summer by experiencing professionally crafted, fun art lessons where diversified, simple instructions help guide you through the completion of a unique art piece.

Each “concept based” art lesson provides a strong “jumping off point” in which to begin, but unstructured in the art making process, allowing for varied choices to be made by each individual no matter your experience or skill level. Sign up for a weekly course and/or our stand-alone event workshops and discover something new every time!

“SEASONED HANDS” SUMMER WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

The technique of wet felting has been practiced for thousands of years. Based on archeological findings from the Central Asian Steppes, felting of animal hair has been a means of creating unwoven fabric for clothing, shelter, and artistic expression since at least 600 BCE! You will use tufts of fluffed wool rubbed with soap and water to make a beautiful wool fiber masterpiece and leave the studio saying that FELT wonderful!”

Watercolor collage
Mop, scrape, brush, and glide as we blend watercolors and collage in an intricate dance to create a beautiful, unique landscape of birch trees inspired by the contemporary artist Pat Dews. Learn how to use a variety of watercolor tools and techniques and how to creatively integrate collage elements to represent the abstract essence of nature. As always, all materials are included, but if you want to clean out your closet, feel happy about bringing some fun patterned paper napkins, wrapping tissue, old maps or even old books to add to the studio collection!

Integrated Collage
Create an integrated collage of a fine feathered friend of your choice. Collage is about tearing and layering and designing with color, value and texture. Intuitive choices and exciting surprises lead to finishing touches like twigs, feathers, buttons and charms. You will fly out of our studio with a masterpiece on a 5” X 5” gallery canvas. No frame necessary! Bird is the word!

This workshop is being taught by a visiting artist from New Bern, NC! Fran Kohlmeier loves to discover beauty in the ordinary and the extraordinary within the serendipity of collage, the strength of abstract shapes, and the serenity of simple landscapes. She draws inspiration for her beautiful watercolors, pastel paintings, acrylic still lifes and landscapes from the world around her.

Multi-media
Explore the beauty of contrast. Learn why value packs a wallop! Discover which artists are famous for their decided lack of color in their compositions. Experience the joy of painting with different mediums, on varying surfaces, to create abstract compositions in black and white. The simple, non-objective, open-ended subject matter leaves plenty of room for happy accidents and unexpected surprises. The instruction will be geared to a beginner, but interesting enough for expert hands.
