Finding Your Inner Georgia O’Keeffe
10 am – 4 pm
This class, based on O’Keeffe’s dictum to “fill a space in a beautiful way,” opens up the making of art with a view toward O’Keeffe’s own perspective and practices. Get started or get guidance from visiting artist Anna Koster, who worked with O’Keeffe in 1976 and has gone on to have a long career as an artist. Students will begin with an exercise that O’Keeffe often assigned and another from the teacher who encouraged her to express herself, which ultimately led to her fame. This class focuses on color, composition, and personal expression and is ideal for beginners, amateurs, and those looking for a fresh approach for their work
