Hands-On Kinetic Art Mobile Class
All experience levels are welcome to join this class. Learn to express your creativity using wood, dowels, paper, glue and string. Find your unique style and learn the importance of color, balance and design in building kinetic art.
Each participant will take home their own unique mobile!
Colorado Kinetic Arts is the brainchild Boulder Art Association member artist Michael Deragisch. His unique structural designs appear to float effortlessly, inviting the viewer to follow its movement while simultaneously being moved by the clean, artistic form. Each piece is an original and is the result of artful design and perfect balance. This combination is what makes the mobiles so captivating.
Mobiles are most often associated with the renowned artist, Alexander Calder, or alternatively, with infant mobiles which hang over a crib to stimulate thought patterns of babies. Mr. Calder has been credited with inventing the form, but as a prolific artist in many mediums, his work has been appreciated by millions worldwide. Most of Calder’s works are massive and intended for outdoor installations. These beautiful pieces are out of reach for most of us—in both cost and scale.
Please join us June 12th for a fun night of art, food, and
friendly people at our monthly member meeting!
