Visual Arts

Online Visual Arts Series: Abstract Art with Marlene Lowden 

Explore the mysterious world of abstract art in Place des Arts’ first online visual arts series! View five videos by artist and educator Marlene Lowden to discover how artists use the elements of design to express themselves while experimenting with materials you have at home. Through a series of fun activities in each video, you will be introduced to each element of design and learn how to interpret these elements when looking at abstract art. This video series is suitable for all ages and ability levels, gather your household or tune in with friends virtually and begin creating! See the Supply List for the first activity below. 

Videos 2 through 5 will be released every Thursday, beginning on April 30. Find more details on the upcoming classes here.
