2:00pm - 4:00pm
Join us for Bruce Creates, a new, drop-in workshop for artists of all abilities taking place at the Museum this summer. The first Bruce Creates workshop is Saturday, June 29, from 2 – 4 pm and will be hosted by our new artist in residence, Milena Alvarez.
The focus of Saturday’s Bruce Creates is pointillism still life. Developed by artists such as Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, pointillism is one the great art movements of the nineteenth century. It was an experimental representation of color in the form of small, multicolored dots to create a large complete image that stemmed from the Impressionist movement. In this workshop participants will use materials such as markers and crayons to recreate a still life with this technique. They’ll also learn how to create colorful works of art and analyze how we see and interpret color in a different perspective.
Milena is a 21-year-old Colombian-American artist based in Norwalk, CT. This summer, thanks to the Connecticut Arts Workforce Initiative, she will serve as an artist in residence at the Bruce Museum. The Bruce Museum would like to welcome its visitors and members to participate in drop-in art workshops held by Milena all summer long. Workshops are included with admission to the Museum and all ages are welcome. Check brucemuseum.org for future workshop dates and times.
