2013 Art Station Invitational, November 19-23

OPENING RECEPTION--Tuesday, November 19
6:00 to 8:00 PM at The Art Station and The Clay Station

At one table, a man is drawing a portrait of his two grandchildren. At an easel, a woman paints a landcape in thick impasto, while yet another is rolling liquid acrylic across a huge panel to deepen the layers of her abstract.

Where are these artists? In YouTime sessions at The Art Station in Ponchatoula, the only art school for adults in this region, now entering its seventh year.

In the fall of 2012, owner/director/teacher Kim Zabbia changed her painting curriculum from structured weekly classes to individualized semi-private lessons. Students at any skill level could choose any art concept or technique they wished to learn and when they wanted to learn it.

Now, this free learning style, which Kim calls YouTime, has become so popular among the painting students that it is now expanding to the Clay Station to be offered by teachers Denise Austin, Jamie Alonzo and Sue Nichols.

Because there are four or five other artists in the room during YouTime, creativity and experimentation are contagious. Each person works on his or her own but joins in for critique sessions offering praise and recommendations. The instructor constantly moves around in order to teach and to guide. Sometimes, an artist will pause his or her work to eavesdrop on the teacher’s suggestion to another student, hoping to soak up an untapped method or a bit of inspiration.

Because students are in control of their own YouTime schedule, many have continued throughout the year to develop professional bodies of work. Now, these artists, ten painters and ten potters, have joined their creative forces to exhibit these works in the 2013 Art Station Invitational, November 19-23, at The Art Station, 146 West Oak Street in downtown Ponchatoula.

The exhibit will open with a reception on Tuesday, November 19, from 6-8 PM, sponsored by the Friends of the Art Station and remain on display daily from noon to 5:00 until Saturday at 3:00. The exhibit is free and open to the public, and the art is for sale. All proceeds go directly to the artists.
