Location: Amanda Evanston Freund Studio and Gallery

Join in this evening of fun and go home with a rooster like no other! There will be color. There will be sparkle. There will be disco. There will be learning of the classic fundamentals of composition and negative shape painting. And most of all: THERE WILL BE CHICKENS! We’ll draw, paint, bedazzle, use some common and uncommon tools, collage papers, and all manner of sparkliness. Students will go home with two 11x14 canvases. All materials will be included but if you would like to bring your favorite brushes, acrylic paints, sequins, glitter, papers and/or painting tools, please feel free to do so.

TIPS

- Wear paint-friendly clothing. Things get messy!

-Aim to arrive 5-10 minutes early. Class will start *on time*. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late will have difficulty catching up.  

Is it okay if I'm a beginner? Absolutely. I only offer workshops that can accommodate a large range of experiences and skill sets. You do not need painting experience at all. That said, some of my students are professional artists. We all have something we can learn from each other. 

Is it weird if I come alone? Not at all. In fact, I prefer you come in one or two at a time. Larger groups  can often shift the focus and pace of the class. You'll have plenty of opportunities to chat and talk throughout the two hours, but I will keep you busy, so if you are not big on small talk, no worries, there's also no pressure to be chatty. You are here to make art! Please don't drag in your mom or your co-worker just because you don't want to try it out by yourself - they'll bring down the vibe. And you're a big girl. You can come solo. I promise!

What about kids? These classes take place in a working art studio. There are many items in here that are sharp, wet, and/or poisonous. For their safety, and my insurance guy’s sanity, I kindly request children stay out of the studio area unless specifically invited. Children are always welcome in the front gallery area, and there will be occasional children’s art workshops in the future. In the meantime, I'm happy to recommend any of the many places in Evanston already offering art courses for children. Thank you for understanding!
