” I think of art as a glue, a cultural and social glue. It’s one of the means that has served to show us the things we believe in and the things we celebrate; it has served to reinforce our relationship to each other.” Eric Fischl
That is what Make Art Monday is all about. A time to gather as artists and friends to celebrate making art. We started this program to have a way of learning about other mediums, styles, techniques, etc… while having fun along the way.
We have painted pumpkins, done collage, found object art, created luminaires, holiday cards, drawn portraits, worked with colored pencils, and all the time we had fun.
Each month is a different art project and you can find out about it on our calendar which is attached to this page. But here is a preview of some of the projects:
November 20th – Autumnal/Thanksgiving still life – Bring your own media.
December 18th – Luminaires – Bring your imagination and your own glass container or use one of ours. Tissue paper, glue, and glitter will be provided.
January 18th – Victorian Valentines – We will be looking at and creating our own versions of the Victorian period Valentine cards.
February 19th – Pen & Ink – We will be having fun drawing & painting with ink.
March 19th – Colored Pencils – Come and learn about colored pencils and how they are no longer just for kids.
April 16th – Earth Day Theme – found object Art or “Recycled Sculptures”
May 21st – yarn Painting – We had so much fun with it last year we are bringing it back this May.
