THE WOMEN OF ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM

Everyone talks about Jackson Pollock... and Mark Rothko... and Willem de Kooning. There's no doubt about it, they are all amazing artists. But we rarely hear about another group of amazing artists who were painting at the exact same time, and with just as much creativity and energy. This month is all about the women of the Abstract Expressionist movement– and we'll focus on three amazing painters. Let's explore the art of Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, and Judith Godwin.

A MOMENT IN TIME: THE GREAT WAVE

This month is going to be wet and wild! We'll be exploring Japanese art and printmaking as we study Katsushika Hokusai's iconic woodblock print – The Great Wave. Your kids will be invited to experiment with some fun new techniques, and go back in time to see what it was like in Japan when Hokusai was making his art!

SENSATIONAL SELF-PORTRAITS

JULY 2018

Artists around the world have painted themselves– from ancient times to the Renaissance, and even today... it seems that every famous artist has done at least one self portrait. Why are self portraits so important? For some artists, it's like keeping a diary. Self portraits are their way of documenting how they see themselves, and how they want others to perceive them. For other artists, it's all about experimentation and trying new things. This month we'll explore paintings by three artists from three different countries and three different art movements!

WOVEN MEMORIES

JUNE 2018

What do these things have in common... a 30 foot spider sculpture, a page of freeform painted spirals, and a book made of cloth. They are all the amazing creations of an artist whose work spanned a century! This month we'll look at the art of Louise Bourgeois. We'll chat about all of the different ways she made art and how the subject of her childhood was the magic thread that tied it all together.

PLAYING WITH PAPER

MAY 2018

This month we'll take a look at three artists who all used paper to create their art in unexpected ways. We'll learn about the art movements of Fauvism, Abstract Expressionism, and Post Modernism. And, we'll discover some fun new materials and processes as we practice planning our composition, using perspective, and making paper collage art that tells our viewer a story.
