Summer Art Adventures

Thursdays, July 10, 17, 24, 31, August 7, 10:00am – 2:00pm
Take a journey into the mysterious land of Iceland! Inspired by the exhibition ICELAND: Artists Respond to Place, we will explore concepts of land, space, and environment through different lenses and materials. Sign up for individual workshop dates or the full series.

July 10: Painting Near and Far
Interpret our landscape through a series of painting explorations: color field paintings, up close observations, and abstracted nature.
July 17: Natural Constructions
Collections of natural materials form the start of endless sculptural possibilities: build patterns, re-create flora and plant life, and construction free-form sculptures.
July 24: Photographic Experiments
Guest artist Kate Lanfer joins us to examine our surroundings through unique photography experiments: photo-document a nature walk, create sun prints, and construct a photographic installation.
July 31: Environmental Worlds
Inspired by the Icelandic tales of the “Hidden Folk,” create magical mini-worlds with detail, mystery, and fantasy.
August 7: Mixed-Material Landscape
Collage, drawings, recycled materials, found imagery, and words will all be combined to create unique landscape-inspired artworks that defy definition. Think big, think surprising, think creatively.
