A living centerpiece makes a wonderful addition to tables shared in real life or virtually. Create an interesting landscape with hidden miniature house plants, mosses and colorful tropical plants. We will follow techniques for creating dish gardens and terrariums. Choose from a variety of shallow glass dishes for a base. Working with floral wiring techniques and an abundance of natural and decorative elements each design will burst with life and interest. Whether a cornucopia or mini forest scene make your living centerpiece your own.

This class is great for all skill levels and is slightly messy.

All design elements and tools will be provided in class.

Your teacher will be Jasmine of KoKaDema Flora in Binghamton, NY. She is an expert in plant craft and has been educating the community in creating beautiful pieces made from nature.

Cost: $75 for non-members; $65 for Roberson Members

You’re encouraged to draw through this art history talk!

Together, we’ll examine a particular piece from the Roberson Museum’s art collection and then respond by making our own piece based off of this particular work.

This month’s artist fits the theme of the season–he created his art while living in the wake of Vincent Van Gogh and in the midst of the Spiritualist movement. This Friday we’re going to discuss Douglas Arthur Teed.

All you need to participate are a pen, pencil, and piece of paper.

Come early for a gallery talk by photographer, Sheila Rock, and collector, Andrew Krivine, 4:30 pm

This exhibition features highlights of Andrew Krivine’s collection of punk ephemera. While staying with his cousin John, who founded the seminal punk stores Acme Attractions and BOY in London in 1976, Andrew Krivine began building his vast collection of punk and post-punk graphic design.


Each month a new lesson, project, and opportunity for connection and growth!

Each Art Club is designed to teach you something new–no matter your skill level–and nourish your creativity.

What is Art Club?
Draw along with the instructor and participate in completing a new project during this 1 hour class every 2nd Thursday of the month. Participants are encouraged to engage and ask questions during class.

Each class is designed to spark your creative energy and focus it into one concrete, manageable project, and through it we’ll explore different elements of drawing.

This month’s workshop is all about designing a postcard based on a place we’ve been this summer. We’ll learn how to brainstorm and visualize something on this blank page, find references, and begin making more permanent marks. By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a completed postcard to send to a friend.
