On January 22 join us for Art Critique 101. Critique can be a scary word, but there is a method widely used by art teachers and museum educators that takes the fear away. Learn how to observe, describe, interpret, and finally evaluate a work of art--your own or someone else's--in a truly constructive way. We will practice these skills on work by contemporary artists. If you wish, bring one finished piece of your own work for gentle, constructive feedback. Click HERE to register.

Starting in February, we will take a deeper dive into three Design topics. On February 12, we'll investigate More Color! We'll start by looking at a PowerPoint that lays out basic concepts and terminology, and see some examples of masterly use of color in fiber media. We will do some exercises with color harmony using the color wheel, but we'll go beyond that to explore the relativity of color, color's relation to value, and the importance of proportion. Finally we'll consider the emotional content of color and touch on the challenges of working with color in fiber. All that in 3 hours! Click HERE to register.
