Art Club Open House

Hello Art Club Friends!

Our final Art Club of the term is approaching and we've got an exciting announcement - on Friday, April 29th we're having an Art Club Open House!

Parents and siblings are welcome (and encouraged) to attend, and all ages will participate in making Art Trading Cards together. Katy Lipscomb and Tyler Fisher, our wonderful teachers, will be on hand to guide first-timers.

Our students have been making Art Trading Cards all term and this will be the big Trading Day! They'll finally get the chance to trade art cards they've made and collected between our pre-teen and teen groups! They've all been very curious to see what the other group is making.

Important details:

  • Make sure students remember to bring all the art cards they have made throughout the semester! They should have a plastic sleeve with all their cards in it - they'll need them to trade at the event.
  • Masks are optional.
  • The event will take place from 4:30-7:30pm.
  • Children under the age of 10 are welcome to attend free of charge as a preview of what to look forward to when they get older! Parents are free of charge as well.
  • For students ages 10 - 17, semester passes are still in effect; an Open House drop-in pass is available for $20 for those who didn't buy a semester pass.

Registration required for ages 10-17; parents and siblings are free!

You can purchase a drop-in pass for students ages 10 - 17 for the event on our website here:



PS: Summer Camps are right around the corner!

We can't wait to see you!

René Shoemaker

René Shoemaker is a contemporary artist focused on silk painting. Born in New York City, she maintains studios in Athens, GA, USA and Aubusson, France. Spanning four decades and embracing a variety of mediums, her artwork highlights a sense of place while capturing the ways spaces work together and how people inhabit and interact with those spaces. Architecture and public places are often highlighted in her work.

René received a B.F.A. from the University of Georgia (UGA), building a career of painting with dyes to create flowing, colorful work on radiant silk glowing with light. After retiring from her profession as a university librarian at UGA, René continued refining her art and sharing her techniques while discovering new ways to describe the world we collectively share.

Exhibiting in solo and group shows internationally, Shoemaker delights in exploring our everyday experiences through color and line. René has exhibited in museums in Georgia, Mississippi, and Paris and in galleries and public spaces in Georgia, New York, the UK, and France. Her solo exhibitions include museums in Georgia and Mississippi, where her work is held in permanent collections. Shoemaker was awarded the Fiber Forward Focus Fellowship from AIR Serenbe in Georgia, and 2024 exhibits are now scheduled in San Francisco, and Paris, and she will lead workshops in Athens, GA, San Francisco, CA and in a castle in southwest France.
