In this small-group/in-person workshop, examine the Art Nouveau style for inspiration and create decorative art. Using organic shapes, contour lines, and a limited color palette, combine several media including paint, pen and ink, stencil, and collage to achieve rhythmic Art Nouveau designs on canvasboard.

Originally from Rhode Island, instructor Bonnie Parker has lived in North Carolina for most of her adult life. She has instructed and tutored a range of ages in painting, especially with her preferred medium of acrylic. She holds an undergraduate degree in English literature and studio art.

Adult Studio

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
