Art is Essential! Alchemy Art Center Offers New Zoom Classes, Community Mural
A message from Alchemy Arts…
At Alchemy Art Center we believe that art is essential, especially in times of crisis. That’s why we are redirecting our resources into free online art classes, as well as an ambitious community mural project, in order to best serve our community during this challenging time
Just because our physical interactions are limited, doesn’t mean we can’t still connect through art!
Alchemy’s studios are temporarily closed to classes and membership, but we are introducing a series of free art opportunities via live Zoom classes as well as a community mural project to provide our community with much-needed creative outlets.
Zoom Clay Classes: Join us for this fun, family-friendly class every Tuesday afternoon! Each week will feature a new fun technique using clay that can be picked up from Alchemy, and other supplies that can be found around the home.
Zoom Sip ‘n’ Sculpt: Every Friday evening, we will be offering this creative and social clay class for adults. This class is being offered free of charge in support of our community during this challenging time!
Join us for a fun and interactive hour of clay play and virtual socializing that you can participate in from your own home!
Our vision for this project began with the idea of interconnectedness. Every person, animal, plant, and environment on this earth is connected in ways that can be difficult to comprehend. Here in the islands, the delicate Salish Sea is an example of the complex interdependence we all share in.
Our goal in creating this project is to bring our community together through art, providing a creative outlet and common goal. We also hope to provide employment to artists through the creation of this mural.
Beginning with a 15-foot King Salmon, we plan to create a rich visual exploration of the Salish Sea incorporating ceramic tile mosaics and painting. This 15 ft King Salmon will be made up of hundreds of ceramic tiles, each one created by someone in our community. Will you join us and help?
