The Mobile Museum of Art continues its outreach with a new series of workshops for spring 2015. These are designed for adults eager to learn or refine their artistic pursuits in a variety of media.
On Tuesdays March 2 – 24, 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., Roy Hoffman will lead Inspired By Art, a writing class leading participants through exercises in using visual artwork as inspiration for literary flights of fancy. Journeys into the galleries will be a mainstay and Hoffman will bring in poems and stories with art at their heart.
On Tuesdays, March 10 through April 14, 5 p.m. until 8 p.m., Rachel Wright will teach Sculpture on the Cutting Edge of Fashion, a class for making wearable art out of recycled materials. This DIY discourse is a great way to learn about dyeing or bleaching fabric, and varied techniques for fabricating unique art garments, including draping on a dressform, appliqué, reverse appliqué and dimensional appliqué.
On Tuesdays, March 3 – April 21, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Ron Thomson will teach Figuratively Speaking: Drawing and Painting the Human Form. The course is self-descriptive.
On Thursdays, Susie Bowman will teach Hand Building with Clay. This will run in a pair successive series, the first March 12 – April 16 and the second April 23 – May 28, both 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. She will also teach a pair of successive series workshops on wheel throwing in Fairhope using the same dates, but running 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Class fees vary by subject, running $120 to $200, depending on specific class and museum membership.
