$30 – In addition to his better-known oil paintings, Vincent van Gogh produced nearly 150 watercolor paintings during his life. Though often lacking his distinctive brush stroke textures, the watercolors are unmistakably Van Gogh in their use of bold, vibrant color. Students will use the palette colors of Van Gogh to create watercolor backgrounds with their own silhouettes on top.

five skins


Ages 12 – 17| March 17 | 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Instructor: Charlotte Patterson

$30 – Friedensrich Hundertwasser was one of the most famous artists of Austria during the 20th century. Hundertwasser had a long-standing philosophy regarding human being’s five layers of skin.  His structuring of these layers, and utilization of them, gave poignant clarity to his messages of social and environmental justice. Using his aversion to the straight line and use of bright colors, students will create their own five skins using ink and oil pastels.
