Art Colony Artists-in-Residence | Community Classes

The Art Colony Artists-in-Residence will run from March 16 - 29, 2015. As part of their residencies, each artist will host a half-day class open to the community. 

Make a Mark with Marty Harris
Saturday, March 28 | 9am - Noon
Tuition: $15
Join Marty for a morning of mark making and explore alternative approaches to rendering a subject, be it landscape, still life, or portrait. Working with natural and found materials, Marty will teach participants to build their own brushes, pens, stamps, and stencils, and generate pages of unique marks and patterns. Inspired primarily by postcards and other landscape references (provided), participants will use their pages of marks to build collaged imagery. Marty will guide participants to consider marks as description, marks as characters, and marks as expression.

Quiting Bee/Artist Salon with Mary Bergs

Saturday, March 28 | 1pm - 4pm
Tuition: $15
Turn discarded art pieces into new creations! We know you have art scraps hanging around, stuffed into a shoe box, a folder, or on the counter of your studio. Bring them in and work with Mary to create a collaged quilt block using a variety of design elements and stitching. The idea for this project is modeled after traditional quilting bees in which women brought fabric scraps and assembled them into quilts. For ages 12 to adult.

Note that participants will be asked to bring a short list of supplies for each class. Please visit our website for full details and call the Art Colony with questions or to register.

Space is limited. Register today!
