Last night, ArtsNow/uLearn kicked off the 2012-2013 school year with an open house from 5pm to 8pm at the Edmonds Conference Center, in downtown Edmonds. Oil Painting, Drawing, Silk Painting, Solar Energy, and others were on hand to show their stuff and encourage guests to nourish their inner artist. Tomas Oliva, the Oil Painting instructor painted a still life to constant groups throughout the evening: answering questions and discussing his process as onlookers stood in rapt attention. Jeff House, Lindy Hop instructor, on hand to show a few toe tapping moves to the sounds of Elvis Presley. This open house was veritable buffet of art, skills, and interests. The enthusiasm of the instructors and guests was incredibly contagious.
|Acting Basics instructor was available to answer questions.|
In addition, as a part of ArtWalk, the gallery was filled with pieces by instructors, both present and absent. A whole array of mediums was, and is, on display to please the eye and charm the soul. Bonnie Hodges' life-like portraits line the stairs and second floor hallway; they watch you as you scrutinize them with character and determination. Photographs by Leslie Saber, Michael Wewer, and ceramics by Barbara Wyatt are on display to provoke and inspire.
If you missed out on the open house, you may still visit the ArtsNow gallery to see these fantastic pieces by our very own instructors. You may also have any questions answered by calling the office at (425) 640-1243, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.edcc.edu/artsnow.
