Expressive Painting Workshop at Creative Pier

May 11, 2009 from 6:30pm to 9pm
In the 1950's and 60's painters used unconventional methods to express themselves. They poured paint on the floor and used techniques such as staining, wet into wet, and collage. In this class we will use the same methods as a jumping point to express ourselves. The emphasis will be on the process and the journey, while we experiment with paint properties and relax our minds and escape the hustle and bustle of urban life.Art supplies included.Instructor Greg Kessler has 17 years of experience…See More

Collage Self-Discovery Class

Collage is a wonderful, integrative way of putting the pieces together and creating something new.

We will express and discover ourselves by using various… Continue

Hello,

As a Brooklyn artist, I write you today to share Brooklyn’s greatest public artwork.

Why it is unknown is a mystery.  Nobody knows it exists.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d2/Arch_and_EmpireSB_-_Grand_Army_Plaza_Brooklyn.jpg

The Tower of the Empire State Building bisects the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.

Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux created the framework for this continuing work-in-progress as the Civil War ended, 25 years before the Arch, 65 years before the Tower, 105 years before the Mirador, and 145 years before I stumbled across it.

http://www.rfkessler.com/coincidenceColor.pdf

In starting the “Grand Army Plaza” group here at Brooklyn Arts Project, I hope to share ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect and promote this View as an “historic visual corridor.”  Building Six of Atlantic Yards threatens to eclipse the view. 

Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians. 

Your friend, Richard
