“Cork & Canvas” Returns To Blowing Rock Art & History Museum, April 21-22

A previous Cork & Canvas class shows off their “still life” products produced during the two -hour session.

By David Rogers. February 27, 2017. BLOWING ROCK, NC — If you’ve ever looked at a Picasso or a Pollack and thought, “I could do THAT!” — but never really found the courage to try, Blowing Rock Art & History Museum (BRAHM) has just the ticket.

COVER IMAGE: Cezanne’s Mont Sainte-Victoire will serve as the inspiration for April’s Cork & Canvas workshops.

With a fun tagline of “Uncork Your Creativity,” BRAHM is bringing back its highly popular series of art workshops, “Cork & Canvas,” itself an inspired combination of art education and social interaction. With one session on Friday evening, April 21st and three sessions on Saturday, April 22nd, participants will be inspired to find their own inner Leonardo da Vinci or Michelangelo.

Participants represent all age groups and skill levels — and receive personalized instruction over the course of the workshop.

Lenoir-based artist Lindsay Barrick will serve as instructor for the April series, with Paul Cezanne’s painting, Mont-Sainte Victoire, which was crafted by Cezanne in 1906, serving as the inspiration. All materials, including the canvasses, will be provided. And just in case you need some extra courage, refreshments including wine and beer will be served.

Seating is limited, and the museum asks that reservations be made by April 15th.  The cost is $40 for members of BRAHM and $45 for non-members.

The sessions:
