Welcome to the Museum’s School of Art!

To safely resume its activities during the pandemic, the Education and Wellness Department has decided to offer an abridged online program of our most popular workshops through the Zoom platform (link coming soon). Each class will be recorded and available throughout the entire week after the class if you happen to miss it.

Saturdays and Sundays, August 14, 15 and August 21, 22, 1.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.

During these two weekends of intensive workshop, we will take a look at various ways of using willow charcoal and powdered pigment as drawing mediums. The focus is on how to capture light by using the white of the paper as well as through subtraction and erasing. Through demonstrations, participants will learn how to properly blend and create volumes and textures to create atmospheric perspectives and compositions.

Instructor: Naghmeh Sharifi, artist and art educator

To simplify your participation, the instructors have prepared lists of supplies you will need for the class, along with the Omer DeSerres product codes. After you have ordered them on-line, they can be delivered to your home by DeSerres or you can pick them up at the store. The prices vary according to the products you select. Download the list of materials and other information below.

There is a minimum of 5 participants and a maximum of 8 participants for each series. If the minimum is not reached, the series will be cancelled.

For administrative purposes, we ask that you inform the instructor of a cancellation at least seven (7) days before the first class of the workshop. Cancellation policy: Cancellations made seven (7) business days or more before the first class of your registered workshop will be refunded in full, less a $50 administrative fee. No refunds will be granted for cancellations made less than seven (7) business days before the activity begins, unless the cancellation is made for unavoidable circumstances, in which case fees will be refunded in full.
