DRAWING FOR KIDS
I'm coordinating an open drawing session for kids.
Check on the links below for more information.
There is a suggested donation, but not required.
Sunday, July 29
1pm - 3pm Drawing for Kids
An open session for ages around 8-15.
Film Biz Recycling
540 President St, (btwn 4th/3rd Ave) in Brooklyn
A donation of $20 is recommended, half of which is given to Film Biz Recycling.
For ages around 8 to 15 years old. Group drawing sessions for great for building inspiration and sharing - learning from each other. Basic materials are provided, but if you have favorite markers, papers or colors, please bring. Parental supervision is encouraged and you can browse the 11,000 sq.ft of furniture and decor.
My daughter Lily and friends with kids have inspired me to create art classes again. So here is a little info to share with you about my back ground.
- I graduated from the School of Art and Design at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where I also taught art and coordinated art programs for children and adults in the community. I also use to spend the summers here in NYC painting abstract/expressionist portraits on the streets. You can see some of them here : http://art.tubbsgallery.com
- This inspired some classes I developed. "Street Art and Mural Painting" and "Free your Mind Art" starting with ideas behind street graffiti and children's art to develop a more personal approach to art. "Modern Art History" is another class where participants created art following the timeline in each style of the Modern Art era.
- Now, in Brooklyn (since 2003), I work as a freelancer creating scenery for films and commercials while occasionally volunteering at FBR to help save the world.
I am happy and honored to have the opportunity again to teach at FBR. Its a wonderful thing to share and explore the creative process. For adult classes I try to facilitate the action, push aside the intimidation of a blank canvas and relentless the self critic, all for the purpose for drawing like a kid again. I think nurturing the kid within us all keeps us inspired and motivated. Since this is not a problem for young kids, I coordinate open sessions for the younger ones to nurture this free spirited approach, while they are still free spirited :)
It's going to be a blast!
See you soon,
Brian Tubbs, father to Lily (9mos)
