Wed, May 1 - Fri, May 31 2024

The theme for May's art-making activity is inspired by April Gornik's moody landscape, Cloud Bringing Night. Artists have long been inspired by various weather patterns, representing them in monumental landscape paintings, or using depictions of weather and the sky to create mood. They use their artistic skills to capture the beauty, atmosphere, and sometimes unpredictable weather in their works. Weather patterns in art encompass a wide range of artistic styles and techniques.

April's theme is inspired by the art of Ojibwe artist George Morrison and University of Minnesota Assistant Professor of Ceramics Chostani Elaine Dean. Artists often use nature-made objects in their work to connect with the natural world, explore environmental themes, or incorporate organic elements into their artistic expression. Nature-made objects can include everything from found materials like rocks, shells, and branches to organic substances like mud, leaves, and feathers.
