Asheville Art Museum: Drawing Basics Class
Sep 23 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Online

September 9, 16, 23, 30, October 7 & 14 (make-up, if needed: October 21)—Wednesdays, 6–8pm
Registration deadline: September 2
This program takes place virtually via Zoom. Space is limited; to register, click here or call 828.253.3227 x122.

In this six-part class, explore the fundamentals of drawing. Strengthen your ability to understand the visual language employed by artists, and learn to speak the same language by developing work of your own. Working with both technique and theory, start with proportion, placement, planes, and perspective, then move to shading and measuring before putting it all together in a final copying exercise. Works from the Museum’s Collection serve as examples of key drawing concepts, as well as a model for master copies.

Instructor Tony Corbitt, Jr. is a professional, self-taught artist living, working, and teaching in Asheville. Inspired by the French Masters of the late 19th century, he often favors plein air painting, emphasizing tonal relationships and sound draftsmanship with broad sweeps of a loaded brush. His inspiration is rooted in the American South; be it painting the Gulf Coast, sketching an alligator, or capturing the ever-changing shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, he can usually be found outdoors, fully immersed in his surroundings.

In this four-part class, explore ways to compose images in non-standard ways using digital photography! Through a series of weekly assignments, rethink the idea of point-and-shoot style photography, and practice techniques for creating alternative compositions. Use images from the Museum’s Collection and other sources for inspiration.

This virtual class is designed with beginners, hobbyists, and those with some photography experience in mind.

Vessels of Hope Fundraiser Chapter Two

“As we continue to press into Hope, we continue to hear from supporters, and the message is loud and clear – they also feel the Hope connected to our mission, and want to keep supporting us.” Discovering new ways to sustain The Village Potters Clay Center during this season is the primary job now for the resident potters at TVPCC. As Sarah continues to apply for loans and grants, other potters are choosing hope each day by taking the torch from her to carry on the mission with a second “chapter” of Vessels of Hope.

The Village Potters are Sarah Wells Rolland, George Rolland, Judi Harwood, Lori Theriault, Julia Mann, Christine Henry, and Tori Motyl. They comprise an intentional Collective of potters who share a commitment to nurture creative exploration through education, experience, and community. The Village Potters includes a fine craft gallery, a Teaching Center offering ongoing classes in wheel and hand building for adults, an Advanced Ceramic Studies Program, and online demonstration and workshops. The Village Potters Clay Center is an educational member of The Craft Guild of the Southern Highlands, and is an official distributor for Laguna Clays.
