-- The Center for Contemporary Art is happy to announce its spring schedule of art classes and workshops which begin online April 13 and runs through June. Because The Center is temporarily closed due to the statewide shutdown, we are pleased to offer more than twenty classes online using the ZOOM platform. In addition, registration is available for late spring classes and workshops that are still scheduled at this time to take place at The Center. Online classes are offered for artists with all levels of expertise in a variety of media including oil and acrylic paint, pastel, watercolor, drawing, and ceramics.
Using the ZOOM platform students will be able to see and interact with the teacher and other students, receive personal feedback and instruction from the teacher, participate in live demonstrations, and share their work and ideas. We hope these online classes will create the same sense of community that happens at The Center each day.
New classes this spring include "Approaches to Contemporary Painting," "iPad Drawing and Painting," "Animal Portraiture,"
and "The Glaze of Our Lives," for ceramics students. In "Approaches to Contemporary Painting" with Michael McFadden, students of all levels will focus on a contemporary style of painting in each class and the artist who exemplifies it. "iPad Drawing and Painting" is a beginner class for adults and teens ages 16 and over. Instructor Jeremie Duval will guide students through the many techniques of creating contemporary digital works of art on an iPad. Margaret Fanning's "Animal Portraiture"
class guides students from initial sketches to a final drawing or painting. "The Glaze of Our Lives," with instructor John Reinking, provides ceramic students of all levels with a new powerful perspective on materials and glazes.
Spring art workshops provide special one- or two-day opportunities and include "Sketching with Watercolor,"
"Watercolor Bridges and Streams," "Colored Pencil Workshop," "Simplifying the Landscape in Pastel," Watercolor Pouring Technique," "Ceramic Workshop with Peter Callas," and "Art Journaling."
Online classes will also be offered for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special needs beginning April 13th. Students will explore a variety of art projects specifically geared to their interest and ability both in two-and-three dimensional approaches.
