12x12 Art workshops

On Saturday, Feb. 18 at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center, local artist Patti Hutchens Jouppi will be teaching workshops for youth and adults who would like to create a piece for the Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s annual 12x12 Community Art Exhibit.
This year’s exhibit theme is “ink,” and Jouppi will be teaching Chinese painting techniques, which she learned while visiting Taipei, Taiwan, and studying with artist Lian Quan Zhen. Jouppi will also share how she approaches the 12x12 exhibit each year.
The youth workshop (for children under the age of 14) will take place from 12:30-1:30 p.m. and costs $13. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult. The adult workshop (for ages 14 and older) will take place from 2-4 p.m. and costs $26.
Materials will be provided as a part of the workshop cost, but participants are welcome to bring their own brushes and water-based paints/inks. The $12.12 submission fee for entry into the 12x12 exhibit is not included in the workshop fee. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required to secure a spot as space is limited. To download a registration form visit juneau.org/library/museum/classes.php or pick one up at the Museum, located at the corner of 4th and Main Streets.
Artists of all ages are encouraged to submit a piece to the 12x12 exhibit, even if they do not attend the workshop. The artwork must be a square or cube 12 inches by 12 inches (by 12 inches), be ready to hang, and focus on the theme “ink.” Submissions are due at the Museum February 21st-25th, accompanied by a registration form and $12.12 submission fee. More information and a registration form can be found at juneau.org/library/museum/exhibits_opportunities.php.
