Mixing It Up: Drawing + Mixed Media

Thursday, February 1, 2018
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
$220 Museum Members, $240 non-members (includes some materials)

Ignite or expand your drawing skills by combining layers of mark-making with acrylic paint, collage, ink, transfer, and transparency, and by drawing on a painted three-dimensional object. Explore combinations of wet and dry media, practice unusual background treatments, and learn to edit your work using reductive techniques. Weekly classes include slide talks examining contemporary drawing as well as masters from art history, many from the Museum’s Collection; work sessions; and individual discussions with the instructor. 

Instructor Pamela Lanza has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, she taught at UC Berkeley Extension’s Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program and San Francisco Art Institute for 20 years. Her artwork has been exhibited at the Graduate Theological Union (Berkeley), UNC Asheville, Florida State University, California Institute of Integral Studies, and Stanford University. 

Space is limited; register by January 25. For more information and to register by phone, call 828.253.3227 x122. 

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.
