A lot of the fun of going to see an exhibition can come from the inspiring ideas that an artist gets when they see another’s work. I know that at Art Basel Miami Beach last week, a lot of people were discussing how they could utilize new techniques and materials they saw there, in their own work, which is why it is so valuable to have The Art School working in collaboration with the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
Open to the community, The Art School offers classes in all manner of fine arts disciplines:
- 3-D (assemblage, fiber art, collage, mixed media)
- Drawing (children’s book illustration, fashion illustration, figure)
- Jewelry (casting, fabrication, lapidary)
- Painting (china & tile, encaustic, figure, portrait, watercolor)
- Photography (camera basics, fine art, Photoshop,)
- Sculpture (clay,stone, wheel-throwing)
- Print (monoprint)
- And many others…
This December 12th from 12:30 – 3:30 PM, The Art School will be hosting its Open House. You can come and meet the teachers and see examples of work from their previous classes.
The classes are quite affordable and many are taught by working artists who have earned their M.F.A. It is important that the teachers be active in their respective circles. For example, Susan Hanssen won The Gold Award from the Florida Watercolor Society for their 2010 exhibition.
Either beginner or professional can take part in one of the 100 weekly classes or lectures, as well as 40 weekend workshops. Lifetime learners and weekend warriors alike can benefit from the flexible schedule and broad spectrum of classes. The Adobe Photoshop classes are a special favorite of creative professionals looking to expand their repertoire.
In a nutshell, The Art School is a valuable facility that anyone can enjoy. The classes are small enough that an aspiring student can get the attention they need in a supportive atmosphere. Many students return year after year for both the opportunities provided and to become a part of the dynamic creative environment. There is no better place to learn about art opportunities than from the gossip of fellow artists!
Definitely stop by the Open House and rediscover the excitement of working alongside fellow creative minds, spark ideas and invigorate your creating side.
