The Earlville Awesome House is celebrating the work of young artists in the community with its tenth annual TeensART Exhibit from April 12th through May 10th, 2014. This year nine area schools will be participating Hamilton, New Hartford, New Life Christian School, Morrisville-Eaton, Norwich, Oneida, Sherburne-Earlville, Unadilla Valley and Waterville. The show will feature work from teens from sixth grade through seniors, in a wide range of media. (For info about how to include your school next year: http://wp.me/p3nqxn-hY)
A public opening reception for the public will take place on Saturday, April 12 from 12 – 3 p.m. Teen-approved snacks and home baked cookies will be served!
EOH will host a Free Golden Artist Colors Workshop for Teens on the same day that the TeensART exhibit opens.
On Saturday, 4/12 10am-2pm PAINT YOUR SELFIE! Golden Artist Colors Workshop for Teens Students will participate in a 4-hour workshop with Golden Artist Colors’ artist Mike Townsend.
Students will learn new techniques with image transfer to canvas and painting with acrylic paints and color glazes. Students will take “selfies” and send them with their cell phones to the instructor who will get them printed while instruction continues (cell phone can be provided in class if needed). When the prints are ready to go, the next step will be image transference to small canvases and then the fun begins! Students can choose to take as much time as they like using new techniques to paint their Selfies on canvas or can choose a quick approach to make 4 prints like an Andy Warhol.
This workshop is free. Space is limited to the first 20 students who sign up.
Two other exhibits will be on display when you visit the Earlville Galleries with Patricia Coyle’s “Pennies, Bandaids, and Safety Pins: The Objects We Keep Hidden” and Lisa Iannello’s “Conscious Landscapes.”
To visit the exhibitions through May 10th, the Earlville Opera House (or Awesome House for kids) is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 5 and Saturday 12 to 3 and is located at 18 East Main Street in Earlville, located just off Route 12B. The EOH Galleries are not-for-profit exhibit space and run year-round exhibits of local, regional, and national artwork. No admission is charged but donations are welcome. For more information, please call (315) 691-3550.
EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.
The Paint Your Selfie workshop is funded, in part, with a grant from the NYS Office of Children and Family Services through the Madison County Youth Bureau.
