Art Workshops, Visiting Artist Lecture, Exhibits in May

April 22, 2014

Try your hand at creating a canvas ready for painting or at building a frame for an already completed artwork. Or, hear from a working professional artist on drawing and portraiture. Both are part of Anne Arundel Community College’s Artist Lecture Series. 

Matt Klos, assistant professor of humanities and visual arts at AACC, will give two workshops, the first on how to prepare a canvas for oil painting from noon-2:30 p.m. and the second, on how to build a slat frame for existing work from 3-5:30 p.m. Materials will be provided until they run out so participants can create their own. Both workshops will meet in Room 324 of the Cade Center for Fine Arts. Although the workshops are free, reservations are required by emailing Matt Klos. For information, visit the Visual Arts News & Events page. 

Visiting artist Ben Tolman, a Washington, D.C.-based artist who teaches drawing at The University of the District of Columbia, will give a free talk on drawing and art at 2 p.m. May 9 in the Cade Center for Fine Arts Room 219. Tolman has exhibited internationally and was a finalist in the prestigious Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. His talk is free and coordinated by the AACC Art Association. Light refreshments will be served. For information, visit the Visual Arts News & Events page.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays-Thursday and 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Friday. Janet Klenkel, center director, coordinated the exhibit.
