The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa in February will begin a new adult-education program called Art Grab, which will provide hands-on instruction in a variety of artistic media and techniques.
Sessions will be held Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons at the Hardesty Arts Center, 101 E. Archer St., with each session lasting two hours. Local artists will serve as instructors, and the classes are designed for people at all skill levels.
Cost for each workshop is $40, and all materials will be provided.
The first Art Grab session will be 6:30 p.m. Feb. 6, with Kate Johnson, an artist whose work is featured in the Hardesty Arts Center's current "Concept OK" exhibit, teaching "Mega Crochet," using cotton rope and simple crochet patterns to create a decorative piece.
Other Art Grab sessions will deal with such topics as darkroom techniques for color and black-and-white photography, Cherokee basket weaving, learning the basics of drawing, and making books by hand.
