Art History: The Renaissance


with Gayle Fitzpatrick

The art of this period is discussed through a survey of visual arts, exploration of history, major artists’ techniques, terminology, and aesthetics. Emphasis will be on the evolution of the arts, identification of major artists, and an appreciation and understanding of a variety of art forms. Classes include visual examination and open discussion. Further your understanding of art appreciation, criticism, and history.

Beginner Wrap Bracelet



Calendar Apr 26, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Wrap bracelets, where a row of beads is captured between two pieces of leather or cord, are very popular. This lovely wrap bracelet combines beads that layer together to form a herringbone pattern. We’ll have time in class to make a single wrap bracelet, but you will have the skills to make bracelets that wrap multiple times after taking this class. If you need glasses to read, you need glasses to bead. All other materials are provided. Kit fee of $15 payable to instructor at class.

Mosaic Garden Stone



Calendar May 29, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Colorful glass mosaics on stones make fun pops of color in your garden, window sill, or porch. These aren’t stepping stones! They are little works of art for your garden. We’ll work with pre-cut stained and other glass, silicone adhesive, and grout to make 1-2 decorative stones. Bring 1-2 stones. The best ones are no smaller than about 4” and not so heavy you cannot manage to easily carry them. Smother surfaces are ideal. Wear old clothes and /or bring an apron – grouting is messy! Grout, adhesive, and glass provided for $10 kit fee payable to instructor at class.

Painted Rocks



Calendar May 8, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

There is a nationwide trend of painting rocks and leaving them around for people to find to brighten their day. Whether you want to contribute to this movement or just paint rocks for yourself, we’ll cover what kinds of rocks make ideal painting surfaces, the types of paints to use and what to avoid, and more. All materials provided, but you should bring some rocks. Ideal rocks have a mostly smooth surface and are around 3-6” in size. Bring 2-3 rocks so you can work on one while another is drying. Kit fee of $2 covers supplies and is payable to instructor at class.
