Adult & Teen Art Workshops


Courage in Creativity

Saturday, April 8, 2:00-5:00pm
$40 Teens | $55 Adults | $12 Materials Fee


Painting abstract art is about play and the courage to let go. It's about trusting the undefined and believing that whatever you paint is perfect. Best of all, it's about playing with fabulous colors, quirky brushes, and gooey textures. Join contemporary abstract artist Paula Jo Miller as she encourages students to explore their spontaneous creativity in the acrylic paint medium. No previous experience is necessary!

Paula Jo Miller is an abstract contemporary artist from Pagosa Springs, CO. Her work has been exhibited in The Gainstorming Innovation Center, The Body Shop, Wild Spirit Gallery, Haas Brothers Gallery, and The Durango Arts Center, as well as in various private collections throughout the United States.

The Secrets of Silverpoint Drawing

Saturday, May 20, 10:00am-1:00pm
$40 Teens | $55 Adults | $10 Materials Fee


Learn the old master technique of silverpoint, an antique drawing medium that first flourished 500 years ago during the Renaissance and then virtually disappeared until recently. Silverpoint uses a stylus made of soft metal to draw on specially-prepared paper, and the resulting drawing will age as the metal tarnishes, giving silverpoint drawings a unique look and style. Tom Mazzullo will offer will offer an art-historical overview of the medium, and show students how to prepare paper, fashion their own tools from common materials, and then demonstrate techniques in applying the silverpoint to the paper using observational drawing skills, as was done by artists Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Dürer. Students will be provided all materials, including silverpoint tools, preparation materials, a selection of papers, and still life objects to work from.

Born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1968, Tom Mazzullo earned a BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 1990, and an MFA from Syracuse University in 1993. He has exhibited in national competitions, in curated museum shows, and in professional and experimental galleries all over the United States.  Learn more about Tom at tommazzullo.com
