Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: Virginia Ray
In our shiny, technological world NEW is not always better. To me, nothing compares to the charm and mystery of weathered and worn castoffs. Fascinating untold stories are held in these treasures of humanity. Do you save special tidbits, collections from nature, treasures and mementos from life events? Then the journey of appreciation has already begun.
“Assemblage,” a fancy term for putting together collected and found objects, is a fun, hands on way to cultivate beauty. We will each make our own unique assemblage style art piece. Creating small practice pieces along the way.
Learn the value of visual simplicity, a benefit that can be carried into all facets of life. The simple and satisfying art of placement, and the impact of shapes and textures will be addressed. Practical guidance with basic construction, tools, secrets of the trade, and encaustic (melted beeswax) methods will be shown. We’ll also cultivate the valuable inner gifts of gratefulness, intention, and synchronicity. Plenty of individual assistance as needed.
