Art appreciation classes start April 12
A series of art application classes at the Kent Library will begin on Wednesday April 12 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will run for 6 weeks.
Participants in this series of workshops and a museum tour will examine a selection of works of art taking into account aesthetic, technical and historical characteristics. They will be guided to examine several works in depth and to try hands-on drawing exercises that demonstrate the creation of the artwork and the artists’ styles. Works discussed will include European paintings, painters from the Hudson River School, and 20th century artists such as Picasso and O’Keefe.
The final class will be a guided tour of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College to examine several originals of the works of art discussed. No prior artistic experience is required. Space is limited. Participation in the 5 sessions is strongly recommended.
Classes will be led by local artist and art teacher, Mary Schreiber. Preference will be given to those who have not already taken this series of courses. Registration is compulsory. Registration opens on March 22 at 10 a.m. You can register for the program by going to www.kentlibrary.org or by calling the Kent Public Library at 845-225-8585. The library is located at 17 Sybil’s Crossing, Kent Lakes, NY 10512.
