Archive for March, 2012
HI! We are SO proud to announce our first offering of classes & workshops at Art Central! Look below … you’ll find ample opportunities to improve your skills with all kinds of media… pencil, pastel, oils, watercolors, bookbinding, & encaustics – kind of hard to decide, isn’t it?
Please take advantage of the “earlybird“ registration costs – you’ll save some cash, and we’ll be better organized! We are excited about starting this program, and we hope to expand it to include life drawing and a variety of other classes & workshops for the summer.
To sign up, or for more information, please contact the instructor.
Note – Most of these courses are aimed towards adults, although mature teenagers are invited to sign up for most of the classes. Please discuss with the instructor if you have any questions.
Also – our classroom is available to rent as studio space by the hour or by the day – give us a call!
And last, please keep an eye on our blog – we’ll be offering a few demonstrations in the near future – as time approaches, I’ll let you know what’s on the menu!
