Ah Haa School for the Arts

Thoughout October, the Ah Haa School for the Arts will be saluting the courageous women of San Miguel County and the organizations that support them by showcasing women in the arts. Art of Being a Woman Month will present a month full of activities, events and special exhibtions all celebrating the female spirit.

Telluride's very own, Julee Hutchison will start the month off with a discounted two day oil painting workshop, Portraits of a Woman, for beginner and intermediate painters. Capture the beauty of the female form and face in the richness of oil paint, during this fun and non-intimidating class. Julee will discuss and demonstrate composition, anatomy, mixing of colors, the approach to a blank canvas, and the importances of “edges”. During the lunch break we will look at photos of famous painters and discuss the factors of their successful paintings. This course empowers the apprehensive creator to engage with a rewarding medium, by receiving one-on-one instructions as they paint from a female model.

Oh and there is more to come. The 2nd Annual BRAvo Auction featuring community designed bras will be held on October 21 at the Sheridan Bar. Pick up a bra at the school to decorate! The Ah Haa School for the Arts is glad to once again host Lunafest, the national touring women's short film festival. This powerful and unique film festival showcases women as leaders in society, illustrated through nine short films by women filmmakers. In the Daniel Tucker Gallery, Julie Smith will be displaying 65 images from her series of 100 Women Over the Age of 50 Who Like Who They Are Becoming. The opening reception of this powerful show will be October 6.

Additional discounted workshops include a one day Fall Watercolors Workshop with Meredith Nemirov, Stained Glass Boxes with Marty Langion, Travel Sketching with Karen Wilcox and Flair Robinson's new Mixed Media Mosaics.

Please join us here at the Ah Haa School for the Arts during the month of October. We will be building and sharing a lot of positive energy, good times and awareness for the beauty and strength of the female spirit!
