In this multi-media class instructor Abbeth Russell will guide us through an exploration of strange and wonderful surrealist art through history and practice. Surrealism is an art form that takes its inspiration from dreams and the subconscious mind. This class is an opportunity to delve into your imagination and bring the ideas and images that hide there on to paper and canvas. We will use surrealist drawing games and techniques to generate imagery for our own work.

This class is designed for teens in grade 7 and up (ages 13-18). It will be a fun, educational, and accessible class for young artists of all experience levels. All supplies and snacks are included in the cost of this class! Please sign up in advance to reserve your spot. A minimum of 5 students is needed to run this class.

Parents: please fill out the form below after you've registered. 

Abbeth Russell received her BFA in Painting from Maine College of Art and has been teaching since she graduated in 2011. When she isn’t teaching, she can be found painting, juggling, performing with her band, touring the country with her art collective, or petting her large cat Jackson. *Image above by Abbeth Russell
