*CANCELED* Impressionist Optics: Connecting Photography and Painting (Grades 6–12)
This workshop has been canceled.
In conjunction with our current exhibition Across the Atlantic, Asheville artist Jenny Pickens leads this workshop highlighting the relationship between art, science, and technology that was critical to the Impressionist movement. Students begin by using Polaroid cameras to create instant photographs of everyday street scenes, then create their own plein-air paintings in downtown Asheville.
- Youth Studio is held indoors in the Museum’s John & Robyn Horn Education Center during cold weather, and out-of-doors weather permitting.
- Space is limited to small groups of up to 10 students; face coverings and social distancing are required.
Youth Studio is the Museum’s new studio program for children and teens! Students experiment and explore a variety of media and techniques through classes and workshops led by visiting artists and Museum educators. Classes meet 2–4 weeks and are designed for a deeper exploration of a specific media; workshops meet 3–5 hours and introduce a new medium or process. All materials are provided by the Museum.
The Museum is committed to making our programs accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means. With support from the Walnut Cove Members Association, we are able to provide a limited amount of financial aid to help students who could not otherwise afford to enroll in our programs. Email Sharon McRorie, education programs manager, or call 828.253.3227 x124 to inquire.
