Participants will also take a guided tour to look at some of the Museum’s own ceramic pieces and then return to finish decorating their pottery. At the end of the class, the instructor will take your pieces to his studio to be fired. Participants will pick up their finished food-safe pieces at the Museum about two weeks after the workshop.

Also covered in this workshop will be an overview of painting materials and mediums, color palette setup, and applying varnish.

This workshop is designed to accelerate a student’s knowledge in a very logical and simple approach to painting.

Teambuilding Art Experiences


Is your business, corporation or non-profit looking for a fun and creative teambuilding event? Then consider the Evansville Museum’s brand new teambuilding experiences! These enjoyable, energetic, and enlightening workshops situated in the unique setting of the Museum will encourage personal and collective creativity and problem solving. Participants will leave with increased focus, less stress and a greater appreciation for art as well as their peers and co-workers.

In pre-consultation with the teaching artist, Julie Struck, the activity will be customized to the specific organization and/or the participants’ needs, which could include branding, logo and mission or core values.

Groups will work together to create a concept based on a theme or mission statement and then implement it through creating a collaborative piece of art. An important part of the experience is participants’ reflection and discussion about the activity. Groups may choose to create a mixed media or canvas painting. Teams take the project with them for display at their place of business. The price is $50 per person for a four hour experience for a group of 20 or less.
