Asian brush-style bird paintings
With visiting artist Jean Kigel
10am-2pm, $10 Suggested (includes materials)

Join visiting artist Jean Kigel for a workshop in how to master the deceptively simple art of Asian brush painting. Jean will demonstrate using bamboo brushes, watercolors, and sumi-e ink on rice paper. Students will leave class with an original painting. Ages 10 and up.

Portraiture & Documentary Photography
With visiting artist Peter Pentz
10am-4pm, $10 Suggested

In this half-day workshop, Peter Pentz will lead students through an analysis of portrait and documentary photography, exploring the technical, aesthetic, and philosophical aspects of the frozen image. Bridging the gap between film and digital photography, the class will include instruction in Photoshop, compositional techniques, and tips for talking to strangers. Ages 15 and up.
