Summer's missing link is you
Studio School’s summer session is halfway through, and a central theme has emerged: finding connections. Whether through nature, mediums or people, students have connected with their inner artists, creating their way through the Oklahoma heat. Missing out? We have you covered. Session 2 registration is live and filling quickly — take your pick!
Connect Through Mixed Media
Discover multimedia creation with artist Danny Joe Rose III, whose practice is inspired by “colors and forms found in nature.” His works act as visual “memories of the natural world and [his] to desire to connect with it.” Drawing inspiration from summer travels or wanderings through your own mind, seasoned artists and beginners alike can hone their skills and experiment with something new in his Mixed Media Travel Journals class. Where will this summer adventure take you?
Connect Through Drawing
Artist Claire Holloway concentrates on capturing the soulful essence of her subjects, making her the perfect instructor for this August’s Drawing Live Birds. You heard us right — birds will be live and in person during the course! Trained and prepped to model, live birds will attend this Studio School class, allowing students to learn basic anatomy and techniques, for birds both resting and in flight. What happens when you connect nature and art? Find out.
Connecting Through Sound
A storyteller with music as his medium: Enter Jacob Frost. As a composer, guitarist and vocalist, this Studio School instructor has curated a four-week class to search for the Sounds of Summer. Is there a quintessential summer sound? Summer band? What would be on your summer playlist? Why do we associate certain artists with particular seasons? What about songs? Explore, listen and discuss with other music fans in this cheeky jam sesh.
Registration closes next Monday, July 25. There’s still time to engage in artist exploration. How will you choose to connect?
Open Studio time is included with registration. Open Studio allows currently enrolled students to work on their projects in Oklahoma Contemporary’s studios outside of class meetings. Times vary weekly and can be booked two weeks in advance.
