This week at the Palo Alto Art Center

This week at the Palo Alto Art Center


Get in Tune by Building an Instrument
Love to make music with your family? Join us on two Saturdays this month for a family instrument-building workshop with visual artist and musician Claude Ferguson. Using our current sound-based art exhibition, Hear This!, as the point of inspiration, participants will make instruments such as glovaphones, rainsticks, and drums, and end the workshop with a jam session and drumming circle! Register here.
NEW: Adult Studios Drawing Workshops
Our Adult Studios program offers two new drawing workshops this spring: The Practice of Drawing as Meditation and Drawing Out and About. The Practice of Drawing as Meditation will include exercises focused on increasing awareness, perception, and observation. Interested in a more active drawing experience? Drawing Out and About, a sketch-crawl class, will teach you to draw people, places, and things quickly and confidently. Class starts at the Art Center and then moves to a public location to practice drawing outdoors. There is a small materials fee for each workshop. Sign up now!
 
Spring is Almost Here!
Just two more weeks until we mark the coming of spring at our free Spring Family Day! Join us on March 29 from 2-5 p.m. and enjoy a wide range of artmaking projects for the whole family. Experience drawing activities inspired by our current exhibition, Hear This!, as well as a musical performance by students from Palo Alto’s School of Rock.  Want to get in on the action early? Members receive exclusive early entry to the activities beginning at 1 p.m. Go here to become a member!
