Pressed Flower Art – POSTPONED
Today’s program is postponed.
Experience the art of Oshibana: creating art with pressed flowers and leaves. Discover techniques in pressing, un-pressing, storing, collaging, and sealing plant material. Explore perspective, value, and composition in the galleries, then return to the studio to make your own contemporary take on this historical art form.
A longtime art museum educator, instructor Susan McChesney has spent her adult life sharing the joys of creating with all ages and abilities. Interested especially in drawing, she has moved from city to seacoast to mountains to broaden her perspectives and experiences, drawing and introducing students to successful experiences creating. She earned an undergraduate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and a graduate degree in education.
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.
