Painting from Observation (Grades 6–12)
Registration deadline: November 11
Experiment with two distinct styles of acrylic painting! Working from observation en plein air in downtown Asheville, create both realistic and expressive versions of our surroundings. Choose from natural/landscape or urban/architectural subject matters.
- Youth Studio is held indoors and outdoors. If the weather is cooperating, we’ll do most art activities outside. In the event of inclement weather or the necessity of studio resources, we’ll move inside to the Museum’s Education Center.
- Space is limited to small groups of up to eight students; face coverings and social distancing are required.
Youth Studio is the Museum’s studio art 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.
