All are welcome and free to all. Come join Art Source members, this will be a truly fun and inspiring workshop
· Please join our special guest artist Claudia Roulier to create a work of art and find out what Art Source is up to. Whether you are a member or not, this will be an amazing opportunity to meet new faces, interact with your art peers and find your artistic process. Do you ever collect objects, art supplies, paper, etc and plan to use them in a work of art? Are you just drawn to certain things? Claudia has objects sitting in her studio to admire and look at for inspiration. She says although she has some favorite things that she collects “the things she loves the most don’t always belong” and some never find their way into her work but have a way of inspiring her or creating a bridge in other directions.
It’s always time for art.
Want to know more about Claudia?
You can find Artist Claudia Roulier in all the right places throughout the Denver Area. She has a working studio, teaches classes and I had so much fun finding Claudia this summer at the Art Students League and the Cherry Creek Art Festival. Just looking at her work you can see how much she enjoys creating drawings, paintings, mixed media assemblage, installations and sculpture. Claudia is a collector like most artists, she collects old photos, eclectic natural material and objects that inspire her work.
Claudia will present her artistic vision, techniques, and fun, sharing her whimsical and surreal insight through combination of collected found objects and natural material. Claudia loves working with themes such as urban decay and end times, she loves bones and is always collecting, and she says that they are a perfect metaphor for the life cycle. “I Strive to draw new ideas and emotions from the solid, firm underpinnings of the past.” Truly a fun and inspiring workshop! It’s always time for art.
What to bring: toys, collectables, jewelry, papers, string, etc. that could become a small 3-D work of art.
Art source will provide some supplies, glue, paint, collage papers, tins, and small wooden pieces.
