Here's the issue that probably most artists have... You make stuff, it doesn't sell, you keep it around... It stacks up.
introducing Art on Loan (or rent-to-own).
The idea is that you can select any of my art for a specific amount of time. You get something to put on your wall, office, dorm room, whatever and I get the satisfaction knowing that my stuff is up somewhere and not stacked in a dusty corner of the loading dock.
By the way, did you know if I sell any art or make money from playing music, that money goes right back into sustaining The Loading Dock!
Larry Golden was the painting professor at St. Johnsbury Academy in VT, now retired, you can find him at The Mount Washington Hotel drawing portraits or out "en plein air" painting incredibly legit landscapes. He will provide instruction and guidance as you render the model and pose. Keep an eye on our facebook page for event details.
Art Class: Paint on a Busted SK8 Deck
Kids picked their own broken skateboard deck and painted on it!
Large Scale Collaborative Painting
After each class during February break the kids let loose on two large 8'x4' canvas panels. This painting is ever evolving and seems to be part "graphitti wall" and part collaborative art. In this activity the kids can learn to let go of having ownership, control of their art work and learn to work together to arrive at new ways of seeing paint and the act of painting.
