31 Jul Compound Art TV in the SFWeekly
And while YouTube is great for learning various painting techniques, there’s something to be said for a TV series that dedicates itself to all-things-art. So we were pretty excited when we learned about, not just a new art show, but an entire web-based art channel: Compound Live Art TV. Produced by the Compound Gallery & Studios in Oakland, the channel features performances, artist interviews, critiques, demos, and even chicken feeding (which maybe isn’t directly arts related, but we’d watch).
We sat down to view the most recent episode of Tharp World, where the host — artist Alison Tharp — taught the audience how to etch. The (nearly) hour-long show was endearing and enlightening — just like those Bob Ross days. Tharp World streams live at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays, and further Compound Live Art TV programming schedules can be found on the Compound Gallery site. And yes, you can also find previously streamed episodes on YouTube.
