Tue Dec 24, 2019
10:00am to 3:00pm Eastern
Free to members, non-member children and adults: $10

Drop in to the Learning Center on select school vacation days for artist-led projects where kids can make an artistic mess, experiment with new materials, and practice uncommon art-making techniques. Each session features a different project.

The schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, December 24: Abstract Monoprinting
Freely express your creative impulses using paint on plexiglass and see it printed through a mini printing press.

Thursday, December 26: Geometric Sculptures
Construct your own abstract sculpture using geometric pieces inspired by the works of Day Schnabel and Ronald Bladen.

Friday, December 27: Large-Scale Painting
Learn about complementary colors, tints, and shades as participants paint large gestural artworks in the style of Abstract Expressionist artist Lee Krasner.

Tuesday, December 31: Sculptural Lines
Create a three-dimensional line sculpture using wires and other materials that bend, twist, and curve.

Thursday, January 2: Abstract Nature Scrolls
Combine natural materials with watercolor techniques to create colorful expressive paintings inspired by the scroll paintings of Rotem Reshef.

Friday, January 3: More Than Meets the Eye
When looking at an abstract painting, it may appear messy and unplanned to you. However, there are many artistic choices along the way. Learn how to use color, line, and shape to create balance, pattern, and movement throughout your own abstract work of art.
