Join Jeanne Larae starting Tuesday, April 24 for this 6 week session on creating abstractions.  Students will learn about bringing shapes, color, techniques, edges, texture, value together to form abstract works of art.  For more information and to register for the session, go to www.kimballartcenter.org.

Mondays, April 30; May 7, 14, 21 at the Kimball Art Center, students will shape an animal head with balled up newspaper. Then the sculptured head is covered in gooey paper mache (muh shay') that provides a great painting texture for the acrylic paints used to bring your creature to life! For more information and to register, go to www.kimballartcenter.org or call (435)-649-8882.
