    Venue is closed

    MARCH 13, 2020: Red Butte Garden will be closed beginning Friday, March 13 and will remain closed to the public until further notice. ***** Flora And Fauna Floral art and Landscapes have always been a fascination for me. The organic shapes, the patterns, textures and the colors in nature are an essential part of my art. When I walk my dog, I notice the yards in my neighborhood and notice what is growing. When I travel, I look at the fauna to see what makes that place special and different. I only paint what I experience personally, whether it be nature or people.

  • Caricature Class for Teens

    • Wednesday, April 01, 2020 at 04:00 PM – April 15, 2020
    • Visual Art Institute in Salt Lake City, UT
    Learn to exaggerate facial features and create unique caricature portraits!

    A caricature is a portrait where the proportions are changed to highlight what makes a person different from everyone else (or the average). This 15 week semester will introduce the concept of exaggerating distinctive features of a person and bring more attention to them through the art of CARICATURE. It will start with "caricature fundamentals" which will anchor in the average and relative proportions of head and face, and include an abstract chart of facial rhythms. We will do drills and exercises to quickly assess features that are different than the average, (like Jay Leno's chin) and then practice how to exaggerate them while maintaining a likeness. There will be lots of drawing in this class so a sketch book will be required to record ideas and several different versions of interesting faces. Come have FUN while studying hard to interpret and make intentional changes to a person's likeness!! First class is 1/8/2020. Instructor: Shelley Young. Materials not included see materials list on our website!

He confronts his own mortality and the claims of family versus art in this witty and engaging look at complicated relationships and a family who sometimes behaves badly. Contains strong language.
