Mixed Media: Young at Heart

Picasso said “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” We’ve all walked into art museums where we overheard someone say “A kid could do that,” but still revel in the work ourselves. In this short, 4-session course, we will explore some of these ideas as we make art that’s kid-inspired, but could hardly be described as juvenile. We will be guided by instructor Jennifer Penick who teaches printmaking, collage, and mixed media to all ages.

For this course, adult participants will try some of Jennifer’s favorite kid-tested (and approved) mixed-media projects that also have special visual appeal for grown-ups. All projects will be easy and fun to make, and participants will be surprised by their sophisticated and frame-worthy results.

Clarissa Pezone: The Woods of No Name

March 30 - May 26, 2024

In Clarissa Pezone’s figurative installations, the artist utilizes the qualities of clay to evoke the uncanny in otherworldly and unsettling scenes. For The Woods of No Name, Pezone has created a new installation that explores the concept of limbo–what the artist describes as “the mystic space that exists between reality and the unknown.”
