Midnight in Paris

February 10, 2012

Last night concluded my three Midnight in Paris events in celebration of CHAW’s 40th anniversary. Many thanks to CHAW and to the folks who joined me in the festivities. It was so much fun to think and play outside my usual instructor box with these short classes. And it was so gratifying to see what folks created. It really affirms the CHAW mission of providing more art in everyone’s life.

January 19 we gathered to explore Cubism. The class created acrylic cubist masterpieces based on a still life set up.

On January 26 a group came together to make stunning Matisse-inspired paper cutouts using hand-painted paper.

And last night was Fun with the Surrealist Exquisite Corpse game. Here are photos of the class discussing the final assembled drawings as well as a couple of individual panels.

These events have left me energized and excited about the start of my Spring I Adult classes next week. Looking forward to seeing everyone then!
