On Saturday August 4, starting at 1 pm, join us for One Hour Art for one hour (or two) for a drop-in class exploring print making.  We will be exploring techniques without a press so you may continue printmaking at home. 1 pm – 2 pm: Radial Symmetry and Hand-cut Blocks – includes warm-up exercises and sketching your ideas 2 pm -3 pm: Collagraphs and Collage: simple techniques for using everyday objects, printed on collaged and found/up-cycled papers.

On Monday August 6 from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, join is for our free ART: Learning to Look program. Using the theme “Movement in Art,” the first hour explores a theme in art history; the second hour (optional) is time to share and discuss your own work or bring in favorite images to explore.  A welcoming introduction for those new to art, museum-goers, and those seeking to further their art appreciation. Spaces for classes are filling quickly – register online to reserve your space.
