During the month of October, the Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery will be displaying the artwork of several young artists from the community.
The artwork on display was produced during a series of summer art classes hosted by the El Dorado County Library in Georgetown in collaboration with artists from the AODC Gallery.
During the three three-week sessions, students learned many skills including watercolor, clay sculpture, printmaking and using lines and color.
They were encouraged to incorporate objects they are familiar with into their artwork while they were drawing and painting houses and buildings from their community.
They also learned the value of making commemorative artwork while they explored using watercolor pencils on their drawings of the No Hands Bridge.
Students and teachers alike had a great time during the art classes, and a lot of quality artwork was produced.
The gallery is very pleased to be able to showcase the talent of these young artists, and invites the public to visit the gallery in October to celebrate the youth of the community.
The gallery is located in one of Georgetown’s historic buildings at 6295 Main St.
Local artists who may be interested in joining the cooperative are invited to stop in and pick up an application.
