The ArtsCenter is cleaning up, moving stuff around and reorganizing–we’re having a yard sale tomorrow with all sorts of weird stuff for sale (and for free!). Rumor has it there will be a giant inflatable “luau party” arch, boxes and boxes of doll-house making stuff and art left behind by various artists, with some furniture and other office supplies.

Come and check it out tomorrow! It’s in the parking lot to the left of the front door starting at 7 a.m. Pictures of some of the stuff that will be available are below.

Portrait Painting 2!

Filed under: Classes — Tags: , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 1:04 am

Here is an update on the portrait painting class held Monday’s at the ArtsCenter. These photos are taken two weeks after the first set. The students have made a lot of progress on their paintings in only two classes. Some are even finishing with one portrait and will move on to another interpretation. The model remains the same throughout the entire class.

ArtSchoo Class: Portrait Painting

Filed under: ArtSchool — Tags: , , , , — Lyndsay Booth @ 2:13 am

First, an apology to all of those looking for some shots of the Great Big Gone concert. I experimented a little and the experiment didn’t work out like I planned resulting in very poor quality photos. So instead I am going to make my first post  in a bi-monthly series on the ArtsCenter’s portrait painting class. I’ll be spending some time in the class every other week or so documenting the students’ progress. I know very little about art, drawing, or painting (I can’t draw a straight line even with a ruler) so hopefully I will learn a bit and be able to share that with you. Hopefully as the class progress I can also get a few students to share some of their experiences with me. Below are some shots from the first day of class.
