Fragile Freedoms: Maggie Meiners Revisits Rockwell
On View

As timely and thought provoking as it gets. This exhibition reimagines the iconic work of Norman Rockwell through the lens of modern America. With stunningly vivid detail, Maggie Meiners’s carefully constructed photographs turn nostalgia on its head and rework Rockwell’s familiar imagery to address contemporary issues including racism, sexuality, gender roles, and the impact of technology.

Ceramic Hand-Building: Under the Big Top Ages 9-12 

Working exclusively outdoors, students learn the proper use of tools, sculpting techniques, surface design, and glazing while creating decorative and functional objects such as pots and vases. Circus-themed projects will inspire students to get creative and have fun, with an emphasis on self-expression. The finished artwork will be kiln-fired to be cherished for years to come!

Drawing and Painting: In the Great Outdoors Ages 8-12 

Learn essential drawing and painting techniques, with a focus on landscape and picturing the natural world. Students will enjoy being creative with other young artists while sharpening observational and representational skills. Experimenting in both dry and wet media, students will explore the properties of line, value, color, texture and composition, capturing views in natural light and rendering expressive atmospheric effects, while developing their own personal artistic vision of the world.

Teen classes are filling up but space is still available. Register Today!
