In this electrifying class, create works that take their starting points in urban scenes and events. In addition to a number of acrylic techniques, it will explore how layering a variety of pop culture images with text and energetic gestures is used today to create the edgy aesthetic known as street art. We will seek inspiration from the works at the Museum, as well as those of artists Barbara Kruger and Sister Corita Kent. Most of the materials required will be generously furnished by the instructor, with a few items to be sold at low prices.

Instructor : Melanie Matthews, artist and art educator
