Participants in the Plastic Club’s weekly workshops will present their work at the Club’s annual Workshop Show. The exhibition opens on Saturday, June 2nd, with a Garden Party from 7-9 PM,in the Club’s picturesque backyard garden.
Since its founding in 1897, the Plastic Club has offered workshops to working and aspiring artists. Currently, it offers eleven different workshops, most with live models. There is a fee for workshops, ranging from $3 to $10.
Last month, the Club introduced two new workshops: a Tuesday afternoon session featuring a Draped Life Model in Short Poses, from 1:30-4:30 PM and a Tuesday evening Long Pose with Life Model session from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.
Other workshops include a Saturday morning Printmaking workshop and a Thursday morning Still Life/Open Studio workshop, when students either work on a still life composition or work on their own projects.
The Plastic Club, located on quaint, historic Camac Street, was founded in 1897 to support art and artists. Back in 1897, “Plastic” meant in-progress or changeable.
