Event Details

Morris Louis and Jackson Pollock, let the paint’s energy direct the mixing and composition. The action painting and color field process uses the paint viscosity for somewhat spontaneous paintings. Work large on raw canvases unstretched. Join Robin Douglas for this all-day immersion starting with art slides for inspiration, light snacks, and art making.
What is Studio Arts?
Join us every other month for Studio Arts, when OMA transforms into an artist’s studio, offering skill-building workshops led by distinguished professor and arts educator Robin Douglas. Inspired by world-renowned artists, and practicing artists with exhibitions at OMA, you will explore different media, techniques, and subjects found in an artist’s studio. This full day workshop held from 10:00am-3:00pm is meant to get you in the art-making groove and develop new approaches to seeing and creating artwork. Whether you have a lifetime practice or are new to expressing yourself, we exchange ideas and techniques in a supportive and challenging environment. Students of all levels are welcome to stretch their creative muscles and build community with us. All supplies and light refreshments for each workshop are included in the cost. A break for lunch and a relaxed discussion will occur midday. Please bring your own bagged lunch or feel free to visit one of the restaurants close by on our provided list.

Members $70, Visitors $100
