Programs

The Stark Museum of Art offers a wide range of programs for ages 18+ including lectures, tours, gallery conversations, studio workshops and more throughout the year.


Adult Studio Workshop

Discover the secrets to creating images with dynamic depth and dimension utilizing one-point perspective. During this three-week class, you will learn the fundamental rules of one-point perspective, draw simple scenes and understand the implementation of these concepts in your art practice. Participants will complete a final 8” x 10” drawing demonstrating their new skills and abilities.

This three-day class will meet on Wednesday afternoons from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Brief at-home assignments may be given during the course of the workshop that will reinforce the instruction that is given in the studio. Class size is limited to a maximum of 10 participants. Registration is $40 per person, and all materials are provided and will be yours to keep at the conclusion of the workshop. For more information, please contact rjohns@starkmuseum.org or call 409-886-2787, extension 3028.

Lunch & Look @ Home

Lunch & Look @ Home programs are a special series presented by Curator Sarah E. Boehme and guest speakers on subjects related to the Stark Museum of Art’s collection. This series provides visitors the opportunity to engage deeply with artists and works of art in the collection.

All live programs will be recorded and available at a later date at the button below and Stark Art & History YouTube channel.

Slow Art Viewing

Slow Art Viewing encourages the viewer to look carefully at works of art. On average, museum visitors spend less than eight seconds viewing any given work of art. The Slow Art method counteracts that tendency by encouraging the viewer to look at a few works of art for ten minutes each. This empowers the viewer to take control over the viewing experience and to make discoveries. You do not need special knowledge or training to enjoy and appreciate art. You bring your own perceptions and experiences to bear.
