Spend your Sundays at AWE! This month, join artist Marla Howard for a variety of workshops inspired by the current exhibition, Manuel Mathieu: World Discovered Under Other Skies.

This program is generously sponsored by Anne Safranyos and family.

Using a variety of drawing tools, Marla invited you to capture Spaces In Between and All Around. Add texture with the use of assorted materials like fabric and cardboard! What spaces are important to you and why? What spaces will you capture in your work?

This week, create Abstract Forms and Figures using wire! Mold, shape, twist and bend materials to create a 2D or 3D shape to represent lines in motion. What important figures will you choose to replicate?

Using the “resist” technique, explore oil pastels and crayons! Create a pattern inspired by the works of artist Manuel Mathieu.
