Corks & Canvases

Thursday, Oct 19, 2023 | 5:30-7:30 PM

The Oct 19 edition of the AMA’s Corks & Canvases Paint Party really is going to be a Scream as we create our own interpretations of Edvard Munch’s famous painting The Scream.

Grab your spouse, a date, or a friend, or paint solo at the latest Corks & Canvases Paint Party at the AMA! You can enjoy a glass of wine and snacks while you get step-by-step instructions on how to recreate a famous work of art. 

The Scream, a masterpiece by the renowned Norwegian artist Munch, is a haunting and iconic representation of human anguish and existential turmoil. Painted in 1893, this powerful work transcends time, capturing a moment of intense emotional upheaval. The figure’s distorted face, set against a surreal backdrop of a blood-red sky and swirling waves, conveys a sense of inner torment and isolation that resonates with viewers on a deeply visceral level.

This class is for all skill levels. Even if you have never used a paintbrush, you will leave the AMA Classroom with your own original artwork, one that you will be proud to hang on the wall at your home or office. The AMA will provide paint, brushes, and a 16×20 canvas, as well as refreshments. You can bring a favorite beverage or snack if you want.

Bimonthly classes are conducted in August, October, December, February, April, and June. Don’t wait too long when registering. Space at each of our painting parties has sold out weeks ahead of the event.

COST: $30 ($25 for AMA donors and legacy members).

Dec 7: Wassily Kandinsky’s Winter Landscape

Winter Landscape, created in 1909 by the pioneering Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky, is a mesmerizing exploration of abstract art’s transformative potential. Kandinsky, a trailblazer of the abstract movement, used this masterpiece to push the boundaries of traditional representation, aiming to evoke emotions and spiritual connections through the interplay of colors, shapes, and textures.

In this particular work, Kandinsky captures the essence of winter, not through realistic depiction, but by infusing the canvas with an enchanting symphony of cool blues, crisp whites, and ethereal forms. This painting, with its harmonious balance and dynamic energy, exemplifies Kandinsky’s dedication to revealing the inner essence of the natural world and his ability to create visual poetry.
