Orange Arts Center Energized

The energy is electric this fall at the Orange Art Center. The students are back from summer vacation and the staff has  been working hard to design an exciting lineup of  classes and workshops to fill our thirteen week session, including a  brand new “minisession” of three-week classes in December. We are happy to announce that most of our veteran  instructors will be returning in addition to adding some new faces to our talented faculty.

John W. Carlson will be teaching “The Dynamics of Drawing.” This all-levels course will teach students about  composition and technique using a variety of media such as charcoal, ink and paint. John “strives to find a balance  between expressive drawings and boldly executed paintings.”

Mallorie Freeman, an artist and the Preparator of the Progressive Art Collection will be offering a one day workshop,  “See with a Progressive Eye: learning about your art by viewing the Progressive Art Collection.” Students will view the  collection then learn the fundamentals of composition in their own artwork.

Kim O’Neill will be teaching an Armor Cuff Etching Workshop and a Mixed-Media Cuff three-week mini-session. Kim  approaches jewelry making with an un-traditional, “no frills or expensive tools” approach and believes anyone can make  cool jewelry.
