Art Class with Wes

Art Class with Wes

Join us for a still life sketch lesson with artist Wes Sherman. Bring a pencil or other writing/drawing instrument, an eraser, and some paper. No art or drawing experience is necessary. Just come have fun and create a piece of art with us! The final ten minutes of this event will be spent taking part in a guided, stress-relieving mediation exercise.

Artist and curator Wes Sherman has been involved in the arts since 1992. He received his MFA from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2003. He is an adjunct professor of studio arts at William Patterson University and Raritan Valley College, and the chair of exhibitions at the Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, New Jersey. Sherman has been a visiting artist at many universities among them Temple, Rutgers, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. In 2011, he also received a fellowship for painting from the New Jersey Council of the Arts.
