In this "Saturday Studio", we take our inspiration from an en plein air diptych by Jennifer Bartlett and create two works: a realistic landscape and an abstracted version of that landscape.
Saturday Studio: Kooky Collages
Today, we take inspiration from Indiana native William Richard Crutchfield and create collages combining two unrelated objects: food and transportation!
Saturday Studio: Seeing Spots
So many spots! Or are they dots? Today, we're focusing only on the visual, decorative aspects of our work as we create our own pseudo-pointillist painting inspired by Liz Whitney Quisgard.
Saturday Studio: Exquisite Corpse
A round-robin drawing game created by the Surrealists for all ages, to play Exquisite Corpse all you need is paper, pencil, and creativity!
Saturday Studio: World of Watercolor
As July comes to a close, so does #WorldWatercolorMonth. Before it ends, we decided to try our hand at a more realistic watercolor, inspired by FWMoA permanent collection artist Louis Bonsib, in the Studio.
Saturday Studio: Watercolor and the Double Life of Herbert Ferber
Did you know July is World Watercolor Month? To celebrate, we took inspiration from Herbert Ferber's topographical abstract watercolor to create our own in the Studio this week! Where will your map lead?
Saturday Studio: Colorful Collagraph
Today in the Studio we experiment with a simple and flexible printmaking technique: collagraphs!
Saturday Studio: Taking a Dot for a Walk
Let's take a dot for a walk! In this "Saturday Studio", we explore the elements of a line, inspired by Francisco Valverde's drip paintings now on view at FWMoA!
Saturday Studio: Spinning Sculptures
It's sculpture day in the studio! Learn how to make a kinetic sculpture inspired by George Rickey, then take it outside to watch it spin in the wind!
Saturday Studio: Celebrating our Reopening with Alma Thomas
Today, we make a mosaic out of construction paper inspired by painter Alma Thomas, whose work is currently on display at FWMoA in the show "By Women: A Selection from the Permanent Collection".
