We’ve survived the holidays and are now left with the quiet days of winter ahead of us. If your resolution this year was to get out and make some art, you’re in luck! We have a fantastic lineup of new classes for children and adults.
For the kids: Mosaic Madness with Art House Favorite Mark Yasenchack meets on Saturdays, starting in February. We also have a NEW Cartooning and Animation class taught by the very talented Will Wilson. Class meets on Tuesday afternoons starting at the end of January. In addition we have a kids Printmaking class with Claudio Orso and a combination Drawing and Clay class with Billy Ritter, starting in February and March, respectively.
Of course, we would never leave out the adults! No matter what you’re in the mood for, we’ve got something for you. The Lovely Gina DeSantis is back with her Clay on the Wheel and Advanced Wheel Throwing classes. Clay not your thing? Try Batik on Silk with Peggy Wertheim, Fused Glass with Cat Zurchin or Drawing Basics with JenMarie Zeleznak.
In other news, we’d like to give a shout out to our very own teacher and studio manager Billy Ritter, who recently published and artist book! In his own words, “This limited edition, six volume series chronicles the life and times of an aspiring artist who returns to college at the age of thirty. Finding himself surrounded once again by the mimetic uncertainty of a university microcosm, he turns to the refuge of drawing. Throughout the journey, the artist traverses the murky depths of a “college experience,” smudging the line between fact and fiction.”
