Explore the medium and techniques of a featured artist and create your own piece in each one-hour session. These are free to the public.
Join Jacqueline Volpe, noted Franklin artist, each Monday in April as she leads us on a journey to explore the creative process of four very different artists:
• April 5—El Anatsui, a Nigerian based artist whose sculptures are flexible and can be reshaped. His work is done in clay, wood, metal and most recently discarded bottle caps.
• April 12—Elizabeth Murray, a painter and sculpture who bridged the Cubist movement and Pop Surrealism. She used color, mosaics and twisting and warping her canvases to create vibrant art, with a bit of whimsy.
• April 19—William Wegman, photographer and painter, whose unique compositions feature dogs, most notably his own Weimaraners, in costumes and poses
• April 26—Katharina Grosse, a German artist, who uses her surroundings (natural and man-made) to create pieces which are colorful and large-scale often running from ceiling to floor or the length of a building.
Each class will provide information on the artist, his/her personality, style and technique. With this as background, each participant will have the opportunity to create his/her own do-it-yourself art project at home with materials easily found in your home or in the local supermarket, or local art/general stores. A list of necessary supplies will be posted on Ms. Volpe’s website: https://www.thecreativitycurator.com. No special skills or art experience is required.
This series of Monday Night Masterclasses are geared to young adults and adults. Each Monday night session will begin at 7:30 PM and are conducted via Zoom.
Participants must pre-register on the Franklin Cultural Council’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FranklinCulturalCouncil) and will receive the link in a follow-up email.
