Everyone is invited to the Grand Opening of the Franklin ...

The Franklin Art Center will be having the school’s Grand Opening Saturday May 21st from 10 to 2 pm. This free event is for anyone to come in meet the teachers, ask questions about the classes, try a lesson, and learn about the art parties. The center will have morning, afternoon, evening and weekend art classes for 4 year olds to adults in a wide variety of media. Our weekly sessions provide our 4-5 year olds with hands-on activities, stories, and unique lessons for artistic explorations. The curriculum for our classes are based on the Massachusetts Visual Arts Frameworks. Beginner and advanced private or group lessons for adults will focus on the individual needs of the student. Some of the topics we might cover are: - drawings to investigate compositional possibilities. - blocked-out charcoal/pencil/oi l sketches to arrange tonal values. - oil sketches to experiment with various color schemes and harmonies. - preparing canvas and paint for the anticipated tasks. - applying paint to canvas, either incorporating the results in direct painting.  (May 10, 2011 | post #1)
