NOIR – The Sordid Chronicles of Shady Characters ArtVenture
February 10-16, 2019
In this class, students will create a cast of characters suitable for a classic Noir scene, along with a little stage where the drama can unfold.

In the optional Grifters and Gumshoes: Artscapes and Designs of the Silver Screen, we’ll examine the key features of Hollywood Film Noir posters. The classical Hollywood era of the 40’s and 50’s has its artistic roots in German Expressionism and makes the perfect subject for wildly imaginative investigations in paint and collage to create epic Hollywood inspired mixed media artworks.
2019 Artventure is limited to 27 attendees, so register soon to reserve your space!
In New Orleans, you can never get too much of a good thing. You’ll have plenty of time to explore on your own, as well as time to leisurely savor the unique food and drink found only in this historic city on the Delta.
Tropical in climate, lush in setting, exotic in architecture and sensual in atmosphere, New Orleans is a worldly, richly creative environment like no other. It’s no wonder that the city has been — and continues to be — a favorite muse for an incredible legacy of artists, artisans, performers, musicians, writers and chefs.
