Make Art With Me! Louise Nevelson & Found Objects (Ages 6-10) (Canceled)
Jan 10, 2018
Class Fee:  

Louise Nevelson

In the 1930s and 40s, Louise was a woman in a man’s world of art.  She was born in Russia but became an American Sculptor to be reckoned with.  Her work is strong, bold and late in her career full of found objects.  She found her inspiration on the streets of New York City collecting cast-off pieces of wood, aluminum, and plastic. She placed the pieces together in framed boxes before spray painting them all one color.  Using one color of paint brought attention to the repetition and shapes, using other people’s junk was just a great way to save money on art supplies.

 

Come create a work of art inspired by Louise’s bold style.  We’ll use a variety of our own cast-off supplies like lids, paper towel rolls, and wood blocks before you and your child choose a single color and spray paint your work.  We’ll learn how to assemble pieces and how to glue them into a sturdy collage.  We’ll talk about shadows, shapes and what monochromatic means. Making art together is a meaningful way to model learning and creativity with your child.  Be bold and come meet Louise Nevelson.


Make Art With Me! Dripping With Jackson Pollock (Ages 6-10)
Jan 24, 2018
Class Fee:  

Dripping with Jackson Pollack

 

Who doesn’t love the idea of a dripping paint onto a big canvas on the floor?  As long as it’s not in your house, right? No worries, you and your child can come drip at Steamboat Studio.

 

Jackson Pollack changed the face of painting forever with his unique style of what came to be known as “drip and splash”.  His paintings didn’t have a fixed or distinct point of interest but by using trowels, knives and sticks he created depth and balance and made you feel, not just see.

 

Come experience painting in Pollack’s radical drip style when we push back the chairs and tables and put some action into our art making. We’ll discuss what abstract and depth mean and how art can make us feel a certain way even without a specific picture of something. Partner with your child and use Steamboat Studio as your own space to create both art and memories. And don’t worry about the drips.
