Art in the Park: Wild Landscapes with Carol Vossler Calendar

  • This event has passed.
When?
Monday, July 22
What Time?
10am–1pm
*Registration required

Join The Wild Center this summer to awaken your talents in celebration of art and nature in the Adirondacks.  Monday mornings in July and August, come explore the natural world with experienced Adirondack artists. In each three-hour class you will grow your art skills and learn new techniques in areas such as watercolor, pastels, and mixed media. Every week features a different focus and offers new skills, so sign up for one or more.  Museum admission is not included. Space is limited to twelve people per class, so please register soon. Basic materials are included.

While at the Wild Center, you will explore the artistic range of acrylic paints, from misty washes and pours, to encrusted, gritty collage, to graphic and linear compositions. This process will be initiated with something physical from our surroundings; stones, pine needles and maybe a little bit of earth! Be ready for unexpected results, learn how to respond to your marks and create one-of-a-kind compositions. Bring a smock or old clothes.

Carol Vossler earned her AAS degree in Forestry from Paul Smith’s College. She earned her BFA from Plattsburgh State University and her MFA from Syracuse University.  She had a studio in NYC for 5 years learning the business of art while meeting artists from all around the world, and also has curated several national and international exhibitions.  She recently retired after 18 years of teaching the studio arts, of which 13 were spent as a full time instructor at North Country Community College. Currently, Carol Marie is the Founder and Artistic Director for BluSeed Studios, a non-for profit arts organization whose mission in part, is to provide space and opportunities where artists and educators can collaborate, experiment, and diverge. Her passion is to find, foster, and facilitate creativity, especially in places where it is thought not to exist!
