Saturday, February 18, 2023

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Paint en plein air using gouache or watercolor with artist, educator and University of Houston MFA alumna Isabelle Zimmerman. Explore how public artworks interact with the environment and create a dynamic compositions inspired by different public art sites on the University of Houston campus. Drop in on one session or join us for all three! Session 1: Abstraction Saturday, February 18, 2023 | 2:00pm-4:00pm Explore abstraction and take inspiration from Jorge Pardo’s Folly to create a plein air sketch using both geometric and organic shapes. Pardo’s intent is for his architectural artwork to heighten the capacity to “structure to our looking” across the wooded space that it inhabits—Wilhelmina’s Grove, one of the last original wooded areas remaining at UH.
