Got Woodwork?

     Pieces have begun to creep in for our “Out of the Woodwork” exhibit scheduled to open on July 4. Do you have something unique that has been hand-made out of wood? If so, there is still time to enter it in this outrageous exhibit! Now, here is the easy part. You do not have to have personally made it! You can enter something created by a grandparent or purchased from a garage sale. The item simply cannot be made from a kit. From wooden mobiles, to alligators made out of logs, abstract carvings to traditional furniture, this show truly is off the wall and Out of the Woodwork!

     The Wassenberg Art Center’s art camp, taught by Pat Rayman began today with eight young people attending. Pat is an established area artist and painter whose work has been published commercially and broadly represented. She is an art and art history instructor at Wright State University and we are fortunate to have her skills here at the Wassenberg Art Center.

     The next upcoming class is Zentangle! July 16 from 10 a.m.-noon. This class is taught by Scott Kraemer of Bryan, one of our exhibiting artists. Zentangle is great fun, a valuable use of self-expression and is the up and coming cool-trend. A limited number of scholarships are available for this class, so sign up early!

     July 19, Wild Women! Wild Women pins are hand-crafted and made from multi-media and found objects. This class is going to be held on July 19 from 6-9 p.m. A crazy array of different personalities will emerge from this class! In August we have Batik for adults and kids. Stayed tuned for further details!

     The Wassenberg Art Center is located at 643 S. Washington Street in Van Wert, Ohio.  Contact the center at 419.238.6837 or
