Join us this month for a tour of Shinsuke Minegishi’s exhibition, Recurring Cycles. Learn how to create a watercolour galaxy orb using wax to resist the pigment. These mini galaxies are inspired by Minegishi’s desire to communicate the vastness of the cosmic space through his artwork.
Join us this month to learn about Andy Warhol and his artistic process. We will be creating mixed media psychedelic artworks inspired by Warhol’s 1960’s hibiscus flower series. Create your own masterpiece to take home using acrylic paint, white glue and vibrant tissue paper flowers on a mini canvas.
