  • Workshop: Plein Air Sculpture with Matt Meers

    This workshop will be performed outside, weather permitting. We'll study the Plein Air painting techniques used by Monet, O’Keefe, and Sargent and apply those same techniques to a prepared slab of clay. Artist and collage instructor Matt Meers will demonstrate how to translate the observed landscape into a raised 3-D form, using shape, texture, light and shadow. Meers will provide individual instruction, advice, and tips on recreating your own unique perspective of the world into a high-relief sculpture.  Bring your own clay tools.  This workshop is for the novice to intermediate age 16 and up.  To register, call CAE at 479-474-7767.  Class will meet from 9 am to 1 pm on May 15th at the Center For Art & Education, 104 North 13th, Van Buren, AR.
