May Adult Art Classes
Want a creative end to your work day? Come to WMA after hours to immerse yourself in wonderful art! A three-class series will be held once a quarter (February, May, August, November) on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of the month. Each month’s series will focus on an artist through the in-depth study of a piece by that artist on display at WMA. Once familiar with the individual work, students will learn how to create their own unique work of art in the same medium.
May’s class series will focus on paper decorating techniques used in functional art, such as book binding. Students will learn numerous techniques, including eco-printing –the process of enclosing plant material in a curated bundle of paper and submerging it in hot water to extract pigments, and suminagashi –a paper marbling technique using floating ink. In addition to decorating paper, students will learn how to create their own sketchbook using a no-stitch technique.
Classes will be held in WMA’s studio on May 9th, 16th, and 23rd from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
