“Blue Monday” is adult fun on Monday evening. No commitment is required, drop-in to take one of the classics Painting, Drawing, or Pottery from 6:00-8:00pm. Pay as you go and only come to class when you have time and take the subject you are most interested in. Class sizes are limited so come early. The Art Center serves up coffee, sweets, and Blues too.
Accomplished Professor of Photography Joe Walsh will be teaching “Introduction to Photography” on Tuesday evening from 6:00-8:00pm for six-weeks starting September 23rd. This is an exclusive opportunity to learn from one of the all-time great photographers who is shaving off a little of his retirement to share his wealth of knowledge with students interested in understanding the art of taking remarkable pictures.
Thursday from 6:00-8:00pm has become “Art Party Thursdays” with free coffee, great classes, and artistic socializing that tends to move to a new location when class is over. “Stone Sculpture” is taught by master sculptor Bob Gottschall. “Beading and Macramé” is guided by Marcia Cash. And Zena Stetka Howe teaches “Monoprints and Monotype”, a pleasurable exploration of color and the one-time print. Also offered on Thursday is “Plein Air Oil Painting” taught by Terry Dunkum. This class paints landscapes on location in the great outdoors from 1:00-4:00pm or 6:00-8:00pm.
