Greetings, Siskiyou County Teachers
We at Liberty Arts hope you had an enjoyable summer, and we look forward to hosting your schools, and new classes.
We have varied and fun exhibits sure to delight your students in the coming months.
Our 90 minute programs are tailored to make the most out of their visits to the gallery; beginning with an introduction to the current show, a docent tour, and, most fun of all, a hands-on art project reflecting techniques, materials and/or media used by the artists. Available visit-days are Mondays and Tuesdays, morning or afternoon session.
Beginning our new academic season August 11th-Sept. 9th is Botanica! A show by artists from the Mary L. Harden School of Botanical Illustration, in San Francisco.
For this project, students will create a linear, contour drawing of a botanical subject, then use a layering, watercolor technique for color enhancement, finally matted in a white frame, to take away.
September 15th– Oct. 20th opens the aptly-named show Bountiful Harvest, featuring the works of renowned Ashland Oregon-based artist Betty LaDuke, whose images of agricultural workers lend themselves as an introduction to life-drawing! Students will be able to create gesture drawings from a posed live model, and later refine it, after adjusting proportions etc.
Ms. LaDuke is a world traveler committed to honoring the labors of those who provide our “Bountiful Harvest”.
Liberty Arts Gallery is excited about the lively new exhibits we can share with our county schools this year.
