The Arlington Arts Center (AAC) is a private, nonprofit contemporary visual arts center dedicated to presenting and supporting new work by regional artists in the mid-Atlantic States. Through exhibitions, educational programs, and subsidized studio spaces, AAC serves as a bridge between artists and the public. The goal is to increase awareness and appreciation of, and involvement in, the visual arts in Arlington County VA and the region. AAC was established in 1974 and has been housed since 1976 in the historic Maury School. Our facility includes nine exhibition galleries, working studios for thirteen artists, and two classrooms. At 17,000 square feet, we are one of the largest non-federal venues for contemporary art in the Washington metropolitan area.

$195.00
Painters use abstraction to varying degrees to express their perceptions of the world. Historically, painters have challenged our consciousness through their renderings of everyday scenes, historical events, and even the human condition. Over this eight-week course, we will create our own abstract paintings. We will begin by using still lives and photographs as source materials, but will slowly move away from the figurative and into abstraction. We will play with paint and experiment with brushstrokes, color, and shapes to convey our viewpoints and emotions. Painting fundamentals will be emphasized; students of all skill levels welcome.

Students are invited to participate in a new color exploration each day! We’ll create a color wheel and learn about color relationships. Then, we’ll look at the works of innovative colorists from art historical movements, including Pointillism, Fauvism, and Impressionism. We’ll also check out the work of artists living and working today who do interesting things with color! Using the techniques and the materials of the artists we learn about, we’ll create our own colorful compositions.

This is a special offering for young children and their caregivers. Moms, dads, grandparents, and nannies are invited to join for a creative experience with their young child. Together, you'll get the chance to experiment with diverse art materials. Children will develop cognitive, sensory, and motor skills while you both benefit from a unique and artistic bonding experience. We ask that the caregiver is active in each class to maximize their bonding time with their child. Emphasis will be placed on keepsake artwork, pieces that the child and caregiver create together that you'll want to hold on to for many years to come. Lessons will incorporate art themes, so caregivers find intellectual and creative value in the course.
