The Arts and Cultural Events Committee is partnering with the university’s Art Education Club and Fine Art Museum to present a hands-on workshop series for students and local residents.
The workshops, featuring fine arts and crafts activities that coincide with the Fine Art Museum’s exhibitions and Thursday receptions, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. one Thursday each month in Room 150 of the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center. They are offered to students free of charge and to community members at $20 for the series of four workshops.
Space is limited, and attendees are required to pre-register. Students can register by emailing Talitha Bowers at firstname.lastname@example.org and local residents can register by contacting Bobby Hensley in WCU’s Office of Continuing and Professional Education at email@example.com.
Materials and instruction are being provided courtesy of the Fine Art Museum, Arts and Cultural Events, and the Art Education Club. No previous experience or skill are required.
Workshop themes are constructed to reflect concurrent exhibits in the Fine Art Museum. Participants are encouraged to attend artists’ talks and receptions from 4 to 6 p.m. at the museum and then come to Room 150 for a hands-on activity that will generate pleasing art and crafts. The schedule includes:
Thursday, April 20, with a reception for the 49th annual Juried Undergraduate Exhibition. In “Spring Watercolor Painting,” participants will create watercolor paintings of the region’s spring landscape and flora.
