The Roswell Museum and Art Center is pleased to welcome new instructor Bailey Coll.

Bailey comes to Roswell by way of all over Texas, moving many times as a child. She grew up mostly in East Texas, then moved to Lubbock in 2005 and fell in love with the desert landscape.

Her background started in art education, when Bailey earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in visual studies, then taught in elementary and middle schools. While teaching, she earned her Master of Art Education in 2016 from Texas Tech University, then later completed her Master of Fine Arts in drawing and printmaking from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2018. Coll has exhibited her work in galleries in Texas and Maine.

Now living in Roswell, Coll started at RMAC teaching art camps in June. She is excited to lead workshops and classes this fall for kids and adults.

Coll will be leading one class and two workshops this fall.

There are fees to participate — to learn more and to register for any of the classes or workshops, go online to roswellconnect.com or stop by the museum. RMAC Foundation scholarships are available.

The first will be “Printmaking: Meaning in Multiples” for ages 16 and up. Printmaking — making pictures or designs by printing, usually on paper or using specially prepared plates or blocks — is one of the oldest forms of art that still exists today. Participants will connect to the past and carve woodblock relief prints, then print the block to create a series of prints.

Printmaking will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6-8 p.m., Nov. 5-Dec. 5 (except Thanksgiving week).

A children and teens workshop will take place Saturday, Nov. 16, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., called “In Your Element.” This one-day workshop is designed for ages 9-12 and will focus on four basic elements of art to create works of art that are bright and fun. Color, line, shape and texture can be used in almost any type of artwork, so students will focus on these vocabulary words and elaborate on their meaning in their projects. All skills learned can be carried back to their school classes or used in their personal work.

Materials and a pizza lunch are included with this class fee.

Finally, get in the holiday mood at an age 10-to-adult Holiday Card Relief Print Workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 7-8. The workshop will be Saturday 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m. Create and carve a woodblock series of holiday cards. At the end of the course, you will have a set of cards to personalize, share and mail. Come learn the basics of relief printing with a holiday twist. Children ages 10-16 must have an adult register with the child.

Materials are included in the class fee.

The museum is located at 1011 N. Richardson Ave., just north of the Roswell Convention & Civic Center. For more information, visit roswellmuseum.org or call 575-624-6744.
