The Word is ART, a unique new cooperative artisan gallery located at 9349 Venice Boulevard in downtown Culver City, is planning an exciting series of workshops and events for the month of July that will showcase the diverse group of artists who together make up The Word is ART.
Sat 7/13 12:00 noon “Linoleum Printing Class”
Among the upcoming events are a “Hand Cut Linoleum Printing Class” with noted Dutch artist Cassandra Bertels at The Word is ART on Saturday, July 13 from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm. As Bertels herself notes, “In one class, attendees will learn the basics of lino printing and take home a finished work.” Some materials will be included for artists to keep, so there is no need to scour your local flooring supply house for tiles and such.

On Sunday, July 14, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, Los Angeles based watercolor artist and teacher Pamela Harnois will offer an “Essentials of Watercolor Workshop” which will be geared for beginner to intermediate artists.

Tues 7/16 7:00 pm “Open Studio”
The Word is ART is starting an Open Studio series, where artists in all painting styles and media are encouraged to stop by for instruction, ideas, and support, not to mention a cold beverage. The first Open Studio will be held on Tuesday, July 16 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. If you are reasonably well behaved, you will likely be invited back.
