Studio Explorers: Storytime (Thursdays)

Thursdays, 8 weeks
4:00 pm
5:00 pm
no class on May 19

Join a small group of budding artists and have fun being creative together in our Spring Studio Explorers class. This season’s theme, Storytime, is inspired by our current exhibition Tenacity & Resilience: The Art of Jerry Pinkney. Students will learn techniques for visual representation and character design, as they experiment with drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture to tell their own stories with unique works of art.

Complete Yard School of Art policies and procedures, including COVID-19 safety are here.

Kristian Battell

Kristian Battell is an artist working and living in northern New Jersey, having recently completed her Masters of Fine Art at the School of Visual Arts in New York, NY. She always considered herself more of a traditional printmaker, having a BFA in Printmaking and Art of the Book from Purchase College, but the pandemic has shifted her practice to sculpture and installation. These sculptures focus on climate change and upcycling the materials that surround her in her everyday life. She loves bringing this practice to a wider audience, especially by teaching kids about our impact on the environment and the change we can make through art.
