Free “Discover, Collect, and Create” Workshop at the Clark Draws Inspiration from Winter

For Immediate Release

January 05, 2012

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—Winter surrounds us and delights all the senses. Local artist Karl Mullen will lead the free workshop Discover, Collect, and Create for participants of all ages. Each Saturday in January will feature an artists’ walk exploring the Clark’s campus. Participants will collect sticks, stones, leaves, and thoughts to create multisensory art experiences and temporary sculptures. Each walk will be different and designed to heighten sensory awareness through looking at and listening to the sounds of nature in the winter landscape. This workshop is on Saturdays in January from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Meet at the west entrance and dress warmly to explore the Clark campus!

Local artist Karl Mullen has developed a non-traditional approach to art making and materials, creating distinctive, poetic figures that float on fields of color. The imagery in his paintings is born out of Irish mythology, family and dreams. Karl is highly engaged in the community and believes strongly in the importance of art making and creative encouragement in children’s lives. He taught art for many years at The Jewish Community Center and in Montessori Schools in Pittsburgh, and most recently was invited to Manhattan’s Ross Global Academy to collaborate with students in one of the most progressive art programs in the country.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open daily in July and August (open Tuesday through Sunday from September through June), 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Admission is free through May 31. For more information, call 413 458 2303 or visit clarkart.edu.
