Still Life Painting at Maryhill Museum
March 27, April 3, 10, 17 & 24 | 9 a.m. to noon

Presented in partnership with The Dalles Art Center; classes are held in the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center at Maryhill Museum of Art.

After studying still life paintings on view in the exhibition Maryhill Favorites: Still Life, we will construct a still life and then paint from it throughout this five-week course. In creating the still life, we will use knowledge of composition gained by viewing the museum’s permanent collection, discuss the possible symbolism of selected still life objects and the role of lighting. Students will be encouraged to take photographs of the still life and work outside of class. All students will receive one free admission pass for an additional trip to Maryhill to further explore the collections. (Pass is good only through the duration of the class.)

Instructor Chris Pothier is a representational figure painter, primarily focusing on narratives, who has been making his living as an artist since 1999. Using oil as his primary medium, he has exhibited his paintings nationally and in Europe. Teaching is part of his repertoire, having been an instructor in drawing and painting at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, University of Massachusetts, St. Paul’s School, and more recently, The Dalles Art Center.

Students should be prepared to paint during the very first class. The instructor will email specifics ahead of time. While all media are welcome, instructor Chris Pothier specializes in oil painting.  To maximize one-on-one instruction, the class will be limited to 10 students.

Cost: $225 members of Maryhill Museum of Art or The Dalles Art Center / $225 non-members. To register, call The Dalles Art Center at 541.296.4759.

APRIL

Slow Art Day at Maryhill
Saturday, April 6, 2019 | 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. Henry David Thoreau

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: to help more people discover the joy of looking at and loving art. When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries. The most important discovery they make is to see and experience art without an expert (or expertise). Join us at Maryhill for a slow art experience. We will begin with refreshments and a chance to meet others in the group, after which we will visit one or two works of art to see through the eyes of the artist and connect with our own spirit.

Meet for refreshments and introduction in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center, followed by a slow art experience led by Curator of Education, Louise Palermo.

Cost: $5 members / $15 non-members (includes admission, coffee and refreshments). Register in advance at education@maryhillmuseum.org.


Poem in Your Pocket Day…Ekphrastic style!
Thursday, April 25, 2019 | 1 p.m.

This day is about combining the art of language with the visual arts. Ekphrastic means “art inspired by art,” and in that vein, we invite you to bring a poem or create a poem that connects to an artwork at Maryhill. This can be a poem written by you or written by your favorite poet.

At 1 p.m., or any time prior to the day, arrive at Maryhill Museum of Art and explore the galleries to find an artwork that most closely connects to the poem you have selected. You can also find a work of art you find inspirational and create a new poem specific to that work. At 2 p.m. we will gather in the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center and visit the various artworks. Each participant will read their poem, followed by a group discussion on connections and meanings. Show a copy of your favorite poem at the door and receive free admission.

Poem in Your Pocket Day was established by the Academy of American Poets as an annual event to bring poetry into our everyday lives.

MAY

Spring Museum Week: Colorful Me
May 7, 8 & 9, 2019 | 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Immerse your 3rd and 4th grade students in discovery through hands-on activities, gallery tours, and a musical performance connecting with the day’s theme of COLOR! State and National standards are important guides for this fun, educational experience.

Colors are important tools informing us about the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and even the pets we choose. When we look at a work of art, the first thing we might notice are the colors chosen by the artist…but there is a LOT more to color than meets the eye!

This journey through color reinforces vocabulary like hue, saturation, temperature and value. We will explore the role of color in creating harmony, rhythm, emphasis and mood. While always focusing on visual learning, we will see how art and science work together, and we will use language arts to document our exploration.

After exploring the Maryhill collection, students will enjoy a new way to think about colorful expression through the cello performance of Gideon Freudmann from Young Audiences Arts for Learning.

Cost: $3.00 per student; schools provide one chaperone per 10 students.

Museum Week repeats in the fall. Dates are October 2, 3, 9, 10 & 11, 2019.

Museum Week is generously sponsored by Columbia Bank, the Cross Three Foundation and McCormick Family Fund of the Gorge Community Foundation.

Drawing from Life
Wednesday, May 15, 22, 29, June 5 & 12 | 9 a.m. to noon

Presented in partnership with The Dalles Art Center; classes are held in the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust Education Center at Maryhill Museum of Art.

Drawing is the foundation of art. Whether you are a 2D or 3D artist, honing your drawing skills is vital to improving your craft and technique. From the Renaissance on, artists have sketched sculpture to explore the human form and arm themselves with the essential information and tools to complete paintings, sculptures and other works. Lucky for us, Maryhill Museum of Art is home to one of the largest collections of Rodin sculpture on the West Coast. This class takes advantage of the incredible opportunity to draw these exquisite figures and three-dimensional objects. We will use graphite, primarily, as a medium, but may dive into the world of charcoal and chalk on toned papers. The five-week class will be capped at 20 participants.

Instructor Chris Pothier is a representational figure painter, primarily focusing on narratives, who has been making his living as an artist since 1999. Using oil as his primary medium, he has exhibited his paintings nationally, as well as Europe. Teaching is part of his repertoire, having been an instructor in drawing and painting at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, University of Massachusetts, St. Paul’s School, and more recently, The Dalles Art Center.
