The three-night series on Thursdays, November 4, 11, and 18, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. will provide participants an opportunity to learn about gouache, which is an opaque watercolor paint. Workshop is limited to 12 participants, ages 18 and older. $65 will reserve your seat in the class and provides you with all the art materials required to create during the workshop.

Insights Lunch & Looks and Lectures

Insights Lunch & Looks and Lectures 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.

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.
