Join us for ‘Aha!  Eyes on the Hand’—an Interactive Evening Exploring Art Behind the Scenes

Keep your eyes on the hand ... the artist’s hand that is! 

On Saturday, Nov. 9, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., the College presents, ‘Aha! Eyes on the Hand,’ an interactive evening offering an opportunity to witness the creative journey from the seeds of imagination through the artist’s eye and into the hand that paints ... or sculpts ... or prints.  This behind-the-scenes studio stroll features informal demonstrations in painting, sculpture, and printmaking, a silent auction of selected artwork and art classes, as well as opportunities for casual conversations with faculty, alumni and student artists. 

This interactive evening includes a light seasonal supper and full bar.

Want to try your own hand at painting or sculpting?  Come earlier at 4 p.m. for a special art class with professional artists, faculty and alumni before joining the studio stroll at 5:30 p.m.

An enjoyable, entertaining, and educational evening is promised.  Tickets are $50 per person ($25 additional for the special art class), $500 at the Patron level (includes two tickets) and $1,000 at the Benefactor level (includes four tickets).
