At this program, we will create wire sculptures, inspired by the human figure in action. We will look at how different artists depict the human figure in action. Using our summer art journal, we’ll create simple gesture drawings to capture the human body in motion and then use those sketches to help us design our wire figurative sculptures.
As part of its Art in the Park program, Waterville Creates is joining forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to create one-of-a-kind summer art journals in collaboration with a free summer reading series. Program guests will include artists, musicians, live cats, teachers, and scientists.
Every Thursday, we’ll create new pages to add to the summer art journals. Journals can be brought back each week, resulting in a fun and distinctive journal that documents your entire summer. In addition, each week a pre-selected book will be read aloud to participants as they construct and design their art journals. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening to stories and creating content for your journal.
This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience. We will reschedule or cancel in the event of rain.
