What’s Happening at CNY Arts Center?

Open Studio returns this week at the center from 6 to 9 pm. Aug. 8.

All skill levels are welcome to join other artists to practice life drawing or painting from still life. Chat with friends and just have fun!

We’ll go outside some days (weather permitting). Bring your own materials or use some of ours. An artist facilitator will be on site. Artists can get practice drawing and painting from life and go home with a finished work. Come early, stay late!

Introductory Stained Glass series continues from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays for ages 16 and older.

Make a stained glass panel using the leaded method, be introduced to copper foil method, learn glass selection, cutting, grinding, soldering, framing, hanging and patina techniques.

Some patterns will be provided or students can get help adapting their custom design.

Aug. 10 is a full day at the center starting with Bonnie McClellan’s Oil Painting “Mountain Reflection” from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Or choose Collage Making with Kendra Matott from 9 a.m. to noon, followed by her popular Different Ways to Draw class from 1 to 4 p.m.

Try a variety of drawing methods, including some unconventional ones: still life drawings, energy drawings, paint splatters and drawing with your feet. They will help widen your drawing skills and provide you with tools to break through creative blocks. All skill levels welcome!

It will be a full day of art fun. Bring a lunch or bring a friend, but remember to pre-register at CNYArtsCenter.com
