SUPER TUESDAYS ART WORKSHOPS

$12 general / $10 members ages 7 - 12 (at the top under Super Tuesdays)

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Participants in “Super Tuesdays” will create a new art piece every week, inspired by “Pressing Matters: 500 Years of Wine Art From the Sterling Vineyards Print Portfolio*”. This exhibit shows the many ways in which artists have used wine as subject matter. “Pressing Matters” presents examples of the printmaker’s craft as well as a cultural appreciation of wine through centuries of art. We will be using drawing and print techniques made famous by artists in the exhibit, including Daumier, Currier and Ives, and Picasso.

June 28 - Botanical Drawing
Learn how art informs science and vise versa. We will observe leaves, flowers, fruits, and twigs up close using a magnifying lens and microscope, then describe what we see through ink drawing.

July 5 - Monoprints
Learn the basics of printmaking and create a one-of- a-kind color print using printer’s inks, plexiglass, paper, and surprising special effects.

July 12 - Linocuts
We will print off of pre cut lino blocks to create an abstract pattern or a scene. Then, using cutting tools on special linoleum squares, we will create an original block print as a group.

July 19 - Lithographs
We will view lithographs by master artists, handle traditional tools, and create original nature drawings using a paper lithography technique.

Refund Policy for Super Tuesdays Workshops: A credit toward another class may be received, if cancellations are made 48 hours in advance before your scheduled workshop. In order to keep our admission prices low, no refunds will be issued for art workshops.
