This four-week class will provide a solid skill base for your young artist to advance their ability and deepen their love of drawing. Class size is limited to a maximum of 10 students. Registration is $40 per student, and all materials are provided.

This four-week class will meet from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will focus on specific skill building.

Stark Art Museum New Lunch and Look Program Planned for August 11

in Arts

Artists Frederic Remington and Charles Marion Russell created enduring visions of the American West. Join Sarah E. Boehme, Curator of the Stark Museum of Art, for an in-depth look at these two artists and their works of art during Lunch & Look @ Home: The Wests of Remington & Russell on Thursday, August 11, 2022, from Noon – 1:00 p.m. (central daylight time).

Using the collections of the Stark Museum of Art, the talk will explore how each artist portrayed “cowboys and Indians,” the military, and western lands in paintings, sculpture, and the written word. Remington and Russell were instrumental in constructing ideas about the “Wild West” with resulting stereotypes. Through their visual drama and poetry, we see how these views of the West continue to have an impact today.

Advanced registration is required for this FREE program. Registration will close on Thursday, August 11, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. (CDT). Register online here.

This Lunch & Look @ Home program will be facilitated live through Zoom from the Stark Museum of Art in Orange, Texas. Participants are encouraged to download Zoom prior to the event.

The live program will be recorded and available at a later date on the Stark Museum of Art website and Stark Art & History YouTube channel.
