“Playing With Water Without Getting Wet”
In this dry pastel class, you will learn how to paint water and reflections in the water with Joycelyn Schedler. Bring your own reference photo of mostly water as the subject or choose one from Joycelyn’s collection. You will create a 5 x 7 painting ready to frame. Beginners welcome and
encouraged. Ages 13 and up. (Register Below)
Kids Project: Suminagashi; ink marbling on paper, or ink floating. This is an ancient Japanese art form, dating back to the 12th century. Suminagashi translates as “spilled paint”, and in this project kids will float non-toxic ink in water, and transfer the swirled ink patterns to paper. Each
marble print is unique, and kids can take home their finished piece. This project is best for kids 5 and up, but for the younger kids, we will have a simple watercolor painting table set up. Cost: Free. Location: Classroom 2.
Community Project: Our next community project, led by artist Raquel Lea, is embellishing a wooden alligator sculpture with rhinestones and other shiny elements glued on the surface. This is a great project for the whole family, and the finished gator will be on display in the Art Center and eventually in the outdoor sculpture garden- coming soon! Some supplies provided, but feel free to bring your own small blingy objects with a flat back to glue on.
Wine Tasting: Stop by our wine tasting station, hosted by Blessed Bee Winery, and sample a fine selection of rosé wines from Italy, France and California. All wines are available for purchase in the Blessed Bee Café in the Art Center. A light fare menu and pastries are also available all day in the café.
Austin Okinawa Tomonokai:
Located in the beautiful Ryuku islands of Japan, is the island of Okinawa. From around the 7th century, elements of Chinese and Japanese culture merged to create the rich and unique culture of Okinawa. Music was always an integral part of their life, and was first written only to be used in formal occasions or rituals. The Austin Okinawa Tomonokai ensemble continues the
centuries old traditions of music, dance, and native dress, with their performances here in Central Texas. We are honored to welcome them to the Lost Pines Art Center for this special show.
