1 pm – 2 pm
Location:   University Art Gallery, 1390 E University Ave

OutsmART is a series of Saturday interactive children’s art workshops held at the University Gallery.  These events are free and open to all members of the community and their children ages 5 to 15.  We encourage guardians to come and participate as well.

On November 11th, the students will sketch still life using a limited color pallet to learn about light and shadow.  We will also use color in a symbolic manner.  This event is related to Nabil Gonzales’s work in the current gallery exhibition, Interference + Interaction.

We will create 5×7 postcards/paintings during the November 18th workshop to be held in Room 218 located on the second floor of the art gallery building.
