Art school and Instructor News

Art and art history classes have started at the Robert Livermore Community Center and run until the end of July 2012.  We had a good turnout for the class - almost completely full.  The classes are for younger school-aged students, and teach various styles and techniques as well as famous artists from the history of art.  Students make an artwork in the style they have learned about.  So far we have done Egyptian art and Impressionism.

Instructor, Thomasin Dewhurst's work published in prestigious art book
The instructor, Thomasin Dewhurst, has had her work published in a prestigious book INDA6 from Cincinnati's MANIFEST Gallery .  The publication presents some of the finest examples of contemporary drawings from the USA and worldwide. INDA6 is available for purchase from the MANIFEST Gallery or and various other sources. 

"about the INDA
The International Drawing Annual publication was conceived as an extension of Manifest's Drawing Center mission to promote, feature, and explore drawing as a rich and culturally significant art form.

The goal of the International Drawing Annual is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of drawing from around the world.

This supplemental resource website offers biographical information and artist's statements for each of the artists included in each annual volume of the exhibition-in-print. One detail image from each artist is also provided for reference relative to their information."
