Art Workshops at the Parthenon

Join Centennial Park Conservancy for “Art Workshops at the Parthenon,” a series of three individual art workshops that will feature a special art gallery tour in addition to the opportunity to learn the innovative “paper painting” technique of local artist Carolyn Beehler.

Come explore the Parthenon and find inspiration among the permanent collection of art dating from the 18th century to weeks-old creations in Moment to Moment: the Art of Martin Weinstein and INSTRUMENTHEAD: A Michael Weintrob Exhibit. Each workshop will highlight a landscape, portrait, or still life on display followed by Carolyn Beehler’s step-by-step introduction to paper painting. Workshop participants will complete their own artistic interpretation to take home.

Workshop themes:

  • Landscape Workshop: Monday, August 12 from 6 to 9 PM
  • Portrait Workshop: Monday, August 19 from 6 to 9 PM
  • Still Life Workshop: Monday, August 26 from 6 to 9 PM

Individual workshops are $55 with advance payment and registration. Class sizes will be limited to thirteen (13) participants to allow for individualized instruction.

Additional notes:

  • Walk-ups not allowed
  • Ages 18+, or 13+ with registered adult


About the Instructor


Agnes Repplier once observed how “the impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life.” Through art Carolyn Beehler explores the places she loves anew, alleviating post-travel blues by exploring positive new perspectives. Enlightened by the lives of people across the world, her artworks testify that travel is more than escapism, that we should absorb new places and artifacts until they are fully integrated into our being. She appreciates the way art and travel promotes improved, longstanding relationships with people and cultures. Collage became the most fascinating medium to express these convictions, given the array of textures, words and numbers that create layers of story and symbolism. Her impressionistic style hints at the works of Vincent van Gogh and Salvador Dali, two artists who pioneered expressions of movement as well as a dreamlike fusion of unrelated images.
