X190: Going the distance in Splash 2012 (Mar. 31, 2012)
Want to travel abroad but not sure where to start? By the end of this class you'll have an idea about what your options are and how to choose among them! We've traveled a bit ourselves, and we're here to share our experiences and tell you about the things that you don't find in the brochures. We'll also have a trivia game on other cultures with prizes at the end, so be ready to show off what you know!


A194: Color, Contrast, and Composition in Splash 2012 (Mar. 31, 2012)
Ever look at an abstract painting and say "I could do that!" Turns out there's (usually) a bit more to it than random application of paint to the canvas. We'll start by looking at some successful examples of 20th century abstract art, and then try to use some of what we learn to create some paintings of our own! Not much art background? No fear! We'll be covering some basic concepts such as brush technique, color choice, and developing a good composition.
