MARCH 20, 27, APRIL 3, 17, 24 + MAY 1 — Tuesdays, 6–8pm

This painting and mixed-media class explores the “craft” of painting as it applies to abstract (non-objective or non-representational) imagery, as well as to the abstract qualities that also enhance the power of representational approaches. Students explore color and composition on canvas, paper, assemblage, and found-object formats. Weekly classes include slide talks examining the merging of fine-art and craft; visits to the Crafting Abstraction exhibition in the Gallery On the Slope; work sessions; and individual discussions with the instructor.

Instructor Glenn Hirsch holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, he taught for 23 years at UC Berkeley Extension’s Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program, John F. Kennedy University’s Arts and Consciousness program, and the San Francisco Art Institute’s Public Education program. He has exhibited widely at public and private galleries in the US.

Space is limited; register by March 13. For more information or to register by phone, call 828.253.3227 x122.

Adult Studio

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a full 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. To add your name to our Adult Studio mailing list, email Kristi McMillan, adult programs manager, or call 828.253.3227 x122.
