Everyday Heroes

Joslyn Members: $42.50; General Public: $50
James E. Ransome’s illustrations of heroic aunts and uncles hang right next to famous people like Satchel Paige and Frederick Douglass. His paintings will encourage us to think about everyday heroes in our lives and we’ll learn to draw and paint their portraits.

Street-Style Script
Saturdays: December 7, 14, 21; 10 am-noon
Joslyn Members: $50.15; General Public $59
Get wild with words in this class that will introduce graffiti-style writing. We’ll learn how artists have transformed traditional calligraphy, like what we’ll see in the galleries, to create expressive styles of block and bubble writing. In the studio we’ll practice funky alphabets and words as we learn to control paint markers and spray paint.
