The Barn: All About Painting | Macy's Arts Sampler Weekend 2016
Come watch artists painting, contemplate paintings in the Gallery, and paint your own masterpiece to take home. Free, thanks to funding by ArtsWave! Perfect for ages 6 +.
Interested in painting? Plan to visit the Barn on Feb. 27, between 2pm and 4pm, to learn more about painting and try it yourself! We will have Signature level artists from the Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati demonstrating their painting in the Gallery. You can watch their progress and ask questions, seeing for yourself how they "build" a painting, selecting features to leave out and highlighting other areas – in other words, making the artistic choices that depict a subject in ways not possible with photography. Then, join local artist and arts educator Dave Laug in the Lindner Classroom, where we will have easels set up and all the supplies you need to try your hand at painting a canvas to take home with you. This family-friendly event is FREE thanks to funding by ArtsWave. This is an open-house format, so if you have to wait for your turn at the easel, you can enjoy the Signature Show hanging in the Gallery. No registration is required. We will paint together until we run out of canvases or time. Perfect for ages 6 and up.
Parking is available in the West gravel lot and in the courtyard at the front of the building. The facility can accommodate up to 40 cars on-site; parking on the street is also available.
