Art Interest Group
The Cornell College Art Interest Group is a student organization committed to increasing art awareness by promoting student work, providing opportunities for students to broaden their art education through museum visits and gallery talks, and by participating in community art projects.
As a part of the Art Interest Group, you might help create quilts that are given to shelters, fire departments, and the police. Through Project Linus, you will learn about the quilting process from a Cornell alumna. Project Linus is creative and philanthropic.
Another service-oriented project that the Art Interest Group participates in is called Empty Bowls, a nationwide anti-hunger project. You’ll create and sell handmade ceramic bowls filled with homemade soup.
Students coordinate a life drawing workshop in McWethy Hall each Sunday and Monday from 7-8:30 p.m. The atmosphere is very laid back and self-guided. You do not have to be an art major or minor to come draw. If you're looking for a basic "how-to", this might not be the best place, but those with experience will be around and are more than willing to help out.
Bring your own supplies. Figure models will be there during this open studio time.
