  • With artist

    Artist and educator Raphael Noz holds an MS degree in education from Wheelock College and an MFA from California College of the Arts (CCA). His art spans painting, sculpture, performance, photography, and social interaction, and has been exhibited at venues including BAMPFA, the San Francisco Maritime Museum, San Diego Museum of Art, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. He has been a guest lecturer at CCA, the San Francisco Art Institute, and CSU Chico.

Learn the basics of painting a landscape—such as how to place objects in the background, middle ground, and foreground—as you experiment with creating light and dark and other visual effects using brush and ink. Artist Raphael Noz will guide your process as you paint your own landscape scroll, learning from artworks in Cal Conversations: Dreaming the Lost Ming.

About Gallery + Studio
On the second Saturday of each month, Gallery + Studio connects art viewing with art making in ways that engage both young people and their grown-ups. Each two-part workshop integrates an interactive gallery tour with a related art project, and lasts about an hour and a half. Sign up onsite beginning fifteen minutes before the session you wish to attend. Space is limited to twelve kids per session; please arrive promptly to sign up.
