Time : 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Teacher : May Jong
Type : Adult Drawing Class
Artist May Jong explores the relationship between representational and nonobjective art in the Museumís collections. Participants look at European paintings from the 14th to 18th centuries as well as Asian sculpture and compare them with works from the modern collection. They learn to break down representational images into basic compositional elements to then create original works of art. Conversely, they reconstruct figurative imagery using abstract works as inspiration. Discover the vital role that color, shape/form and composition play in art making.
Interweaving Color and Space
Looking at artworks by Matisse and Kandinsky for inspiration, participants experiment with collage and color to create mixed-media paper cutouts with oil pastel. Students learn to create depth of space through layering, overlap and contrast.
All levels of experience are welcome. Each class is $20 ($16 for members), and space is limited to 18 participants. All materials and admission to the galleries on the day of class are included. Advance registration is required.
