Art making classes at the Rubin Museum provide participants with opportunities to deeply reflect on Himalayan art through artistic expression, while developing individual artistic skill through different mediums. Experienced artist-instructors guide participants in small class settings that take place after hours in museum galleries and designated art studio spaces.
Inside/Out: Creative Mask Making
Wednesdays, April 1 - April 29 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Course Fee: $150; 10% off for members
Instructor: Barbara Diane Barry
Inspired by the exhibition, Becoming Another: The Power of Masks, artist and author, Barbara Diane Barry will lead this course that considers masks as tools for story-telling and personal transformation. Through gallery visits, image-based discussions, and mask making workshops, the class will explore the psychological role of the “masks” we wear in public, as well as the potential masks hold as tools for insight. Each participant will create two masks—one representing the outer self, and one the inner self—and reflect on the process with the group.
