October – November 2013

Cancelled: Make Your Masterpiece-Session 1 @ Ulrich Museum
Oct 12 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Contemporary artists inspire experimental drawing techniques, while the fanciful “impossible structures” of M.C. Escher and florals of Georgia O’Keefe teach us perspective. Patterns become image in the “new” artform of Zentangle, a relaxing, creative method that also teaches increased focus and exploration. Graphic design takes the stage in popular media images by Barbara Kruger and the colorful world of poster designer Peter Max. Girls conclude their drawing sessions by assembling a professional portfolio in which to store and share their art projects. Earn the Drawing badge. No snack provided. Registered girl and 1 parent only, please.
