August 2017 news from the Grants Pass Museum of Art

Grants Pass Museum of Art

 

It’s almost the end of summer and school is starting soon.  The museum is a great place to visit – we have great exhibits and activities and it’s “cool” inside.  Our very successful classes for children end this week.  We have a bit more room in the Zentangle class on Tuesday.  It’s been a fun summer with kids exploring various forms of art.

We will continue adult workshops through out the fall, winter, and spring. Check below for what is coming up soon.

AND don’t miss out on our fabulous music offerings.  This week we have a double header.  Friday we have Daniel Boling, one of the best song writers in America.  Saturday we have a string quartet from New York doing a fund raiser for Chinquapin Center for the Arts.

P.S. Don’t forget the ongoing events – like First Friday (every month from 5-9)
Second Friday Poetry from 7pm – 9pm.
Second Wednesday life drawing will be July 12 from 7pm – 9pm.
Most Mondays there is figure sketching from 1pm – 3pm.
