Want a creative end to your work day? Come to WMA after hours to immerse yourself in wonderful art! A three-class series will be held once a quarter (February, May, August, November) on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of the month. Each month’s series will focus on an artist through the in-depth study of a piece by that artist on display at WMA. Once familiar with the individual work, students will learn how to create their own unique work of art in the same medium.

During February’s class series, students will learn about numerous works in WMA’s permanent collection, including Shahar Weaver’s Spiritual Awakening in the City. (See image above.) The first class will begin with a discussion of Weaver’s collage painting and the techniques used to create her work of art, followed by time in the studio for students to learn how to create their own work. Students will learn how to layer with various paints, mediums, and expansive techniques to push their canvas to the limits.

Classes will be held in WMA’s studio on February 13th, 20th, and 27th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Ages 18+
