Art on the Street continues a project pioneered in 2016 by the Spokane Art School. Using giant easels, we engage the community in free art making on the streets of Spokane. On eight consecutive Saturday afternoons during the summer, we will stage the event at 811 W. Garland Ave., employing a different artist mentor each week. Giant 8′ easels will be set up and covered with paper. The passing public will be encouraged to draw or paint on the blank paper.

Week 6 – T Kurtz (2019 Spokane Art School Artist in Residence)

Saturday, August 17, 2019

11 A.M. – 2:30 P.M.

Using oil pastels and a basic wash technique, students will work with T Kurtz to draw flowers on paper.

This is a takeaway project.

T Kurtz has had a long history in the Art World. For many years she managed the art business for her mother’s professional fine art career as she attended shows and exhibitions across the country. T considers this to have been the College of Art Exposure, and coupled with her Art degree from Washington State University as well as her years in gallery sales she knows what makes fine art and how to do it. While she understands and has worked in various media, pasteles are her main love for the richness of the pigments and the delicacy of line.

Art on the Street is made possible by a grant from the Spokane Arts Grant Awards (SAGA).
