Art Ed with Autumn: Upcoming Workshops

We have some very exciting workshops coming up at Studio 23! First up, we have our children’s spring break art camp. Ms. Sue has a whole itinerary planned and her student artists we make passports to travel the globe learning about art from around the world. This camp starts on Monday however, there are a few seats available and if you’re interested you’ll want to register today!

Next up we have an en plein air workshop with artist Ruth Howell. Ruth has been teaching our acrylic class for a few years now and to know her is to love her. Ruth is a wealth of knowledge and truly enjoys sharing that knowledge with her students.  Ruth will guide you through painting outdoor scenes en plein air. The class will cover supplies, equipment and tips to paint outside. Artists are encouraged to work in a painting medium such as watercolor, oil, acrylic or pen and ink. This workshop runs on April 24th and is filling up fast- seats are limited so you’ll want to sign up soon!

The next workshop we’re offering is mixed media with artist Misty Coss. Misty has been creating in mixed media since she was a child but, really started refining and honing her skills as she worked towards her bachelor’s degree at SVSU. Misty’s workshop will offer a variety of techniques to help springboard your journey in Mixed Media. In this workshop you will work on process-based projects that will allow the students to create their artwork and develop new techniques to incorporate into their skillset.  The course will also encourage thoughtful choices of material and enhance the process of using the materials to conceptualize themes. The project is a portrait-themed project. Great to create a photo of yourself or loved one. And while everyone is working on portraits, the sky is really the limit when working in mixed media. This workshop runs Saturday May 22nd and you can register online or by phone.

 

We’re also offering a new featured Sip ‘N’ Swirl based on the hit Netflix series, Bridgerton. We’ll be spillin’ the tea and painting the night away. Grab your friends and enjoy a night out while you create with us!

Lastly, I want to mention our summer art camp program. We’re taking registration for all of our summer art camps and let me just say… y’all are going to be so excited! Ms. Sue has been busy planning some fun, educational, and down-right cool projects for these sessions. Our in-studio art camp runs 8:30-3:30pm.You’ll have some fun with Ms. Sue while you learn some great art techniques and history! You’ll use all different art mediums, so be prepared to paint, draw, mold, and everything in between!

 

 

I hope you’re as excited as I am about these upcoming workshops and I can’t wait to update you on more summer workshops in my next installment. And if there’s a workshop you’d like us to offer please send me an email- I’d love to hear from you!
