Wow. What a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! World renowned artist Etienne Delessert will be teaching a 3-hour Master Art Class here at The Carle this Friday, May 20th at 9:30 am. Learn from this self-taught artist who for more than 30 years has been translating his-and the world’s-ideas, passions, fantasies and nightmares into the visual language of books, magazine illustrations, posters, animated films, paintings and sculptures. He reaches both children and adults with his imaginary creatures and landscapes, juxtaposing the familiar with the fantastic to clarify this world and create new and lasting universes.
There are still a few spots available in the class. Tuition is $75 ($65 for Carle members). Recommended for experienced artists, ages 16 and up.
Etienne Delessert’s artwork will be on exhibit in our gallery until June 5th and the exhibition catalog and books will be available in our Shop even after the exhibition closes.

Even if you can’t make this amazing class, you must NOT miss the chance to see this exhibit before it closes! Hope to see you soon!
