Join visiting Armory Art Center instructors who will introduce you to different artistic media every week. Activities will take inspiration from the Norton’s Collection, special exhibitions, and garden. 

Make Art with the Armory! / Painting Words

Thursday, August 11 / 10AM-1PM

This workshop is inspired by artworks by artists who use letters, words or numbers to create text-based paintings. Key artworks from the Fisher Landau Family Collection will serve as inspiration, including those by Robert Indiana, Barbara Kruger, Glenn Ligon and Ed Ruscha. Participants will work with acrylic paint and stencils, vinyl letters and collage media to create paintings that convey a message or play with letters as abstract forms. Led by Kim Rae Taylor, this workshop allows participants to explore the many ways text and paint can converge to create unique works of art.
