AGES 9-12
Three Sessions
Instructor: Elijah Chumley

The objects we surround ourselves with tell important stories about who we are. What could someone learn about you by looking inside your living space? In this class, we will take inspiration from exhibiting More than Shelter artist Erin Fostel as we work on building our observational drawing skills in charcoal and graphite pencil. We will take a creative approach to self-portraits by using inanimate objects as our subject matter, culminating in a final still-life drawing that represents who we are as individuals.

Sundays, December 4, 11, 18
10:00 AM–12:00 PM
Members $75, Nonmembers $90

Mask wearing inside the studios is encouraged and masks may be required at the discretion of the instructor.

EXHIBITION

More Than Shelter

MAIN GALLERY

The essentials for human survival are food, water, and shelter. These needs take precedence over all the others. Virginia MOCA continues our investigations of basic human needs with the new exhibition More Than Shelter. Eleven artists received an invitation to participate in this exhibition. We asked each one to consider what the idea of shelter means to them and choose an avenue of investigation. The artists connected with partners who provided unique insight into their area of expertise. Shelter is both a verb and a noun. It can mean a home, a community, or the people and places that makes us feel safe and welcomed. It also means to listen, care, and to support one another, our community, our land, our minds, our society, and our futures.
