Creating on the Grid with Sarah Tietje-Mietz

February 29, 2020 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Join the Library for a hands-on art experience when we welcome local artist Sarah Tietje-Mietz to the Community Room on February 29th at 10:30 am. After presenting her method of grid painting participants will be able to express their own creativity using the grid approach.

A classically trained artist, TietjeMietz studied traditional forms of printmaking and painting at The Art Institute of Boston (now part of Lesley University).

Her work — which has been shown at SQHAP, the Gear Factory in Syracuse and on the Cazenovia Art Trail — is heavily influenced by landscapes, cityscapes, and architecture. She is particularly interested in capturing the ways in which the world changes as night falls.

Tietje-Mietz paints from printed photographs. To capture an image, she begins by priming and drawing a grid over her canvas. Using a different color for each square, she begins filling in the painting, starting in larger areas and gradually becoming more detailed.

All materials will be provided.

Class size is limited to ensure program quality. Call or stop by the Library to reserve a spot.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library as part of our Warming Up to Winter Series.
