NEW ORLEANS (press release) – This in-person, five-day adult program (July 26 – July 30) provides opportunities to deepen artistic skills and explore new areas of expression. During the session, Museum Educator Mikhayla Harrell will guide participants through deep art observation, followed by art making inspired by works on view in the Museum’s galleries. Students will draw inspiration from Built: Sculptural Art from the Permanent Collection and Preservative Force: Recent Acquisitions to the Collection. Artists investigated will include Douglas Bourgeois, Lin Emery, Robert Tannen, William Dunlap, Mel Chin and George Dureau.
Throughout the week, students will also explore a wide variety of 2D and 3D media and color theory, focusing on traditional techniques like life drawing, painting, sculpture and collage. Students will use a range of materials from found and organic objects, such as intertubes, wood and cardboard to more traditional art supplies such as pencil, paint and collage.
