Vilhelm Hammershøi’s paintings of landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, and the rooms of his small, sunlight-filled apartment have always seemed mysterious. As in the past, the workshops begin in the Gallery, with observation and drawing from the artist’s work.
With their sketches as inspiration, children then create their own actual or imagined places using collage, gouache, watercolor, and charcoal.
Note: The there is no workshop scheduled for Saturday, February 13.
About the art educators
Dr. Amy Brook Snider chaired the Art and Design Education Department at Pratt Institute for 30 years while also consulting in arts education. As Chair, she received grants for a number of educational programs promoting art, poetry, and design. In 2012, she stepped down as Chair, teaching undergraduate and graduate students until January 2015 when she decided to concentrate on her work as an educational consultant. Her non-traditional approach to the profession is exemplified by the broad range of her interests, i.e., storytelling and children’s picture books, self-taught artists, and the integration of design in art education, to name a few.
Caitlin Reller received her B.F.A. in sculpture from the Herberger College of Fine Arts and Design in Tempe, Arizona. Upon graduation she received the Most Outstanding Sculpture Student Award. Reller obtained her Masters in Art and Design Education from Pratt Institute in December 2012. She is a co-founder of and teacher for the Small Hands Workshop, an affordable art program for young children in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband and children.
