The Soul of Color:
(April 23-May 28, 2022, 10am-12pm)
"The wellspring of all creativity is profound personal experience. Come step over the threshold of everydayness into a heightened awareness of nature. By immersing ourselves in the subtle shades of color harmonies of the spring landscape, we will paint out of a dialogue with the ensouled dimension of the world." Poetry and music will accompany our path. We will be painting with pastels, watercolor, and acrylic paint. We will paint indoors in our studio and outdoors "plen aire." General materials are provided; students may bring specialty materials as desired.

Beginners Pottery for Stress Relief and Relaxation with Stephanie Pirozzi (Saturdays, 4:30-6:30pm) ages 13+
Experience the restorative power of clay in this course designed to enhance well-being while learning basic pottery techniques that will serve as the foundation for your pottery practice. The tactile experience of pottery is inherently meditative. Your heart rate and blood pressure lower, your breathing regulates, and your stress level naturally subsides as you immerse yourself in this primal art form. With a focus on process, this class can soothe the psyche and provide a much needed emotional reprieve. 

Silk Painting for adults with artist Peter Bruckner (Sundays, April 24-May 29, 3pm-5pm)
Learn color theory, design your own scarf, and learn the art of painting on silk using gutta resist and dyes. "Color, in its purity, lives in a realm akin to that of music. In order to experience this, we must cross over the threshold from the world of quantity and form into that of quality and gesture."
