Join us for fall art classes

A whole range of class possibilities awaits you this autumn.

New to art? Try ASCC faculty member Sayzie Carr’s class Art for Everyone. Everyone can create art –students may take any or all of the two-week units, and the class is open to students age 15 and up.  The class explores a variety of media and approaches, including drawing, color, print-making and painting, and the final class project is combining the art into an artist’s book. Another great choice for a place to start or refresh your approach to art is Beginning Drawing with Tim Ebneth.

Utilize the creative capacities of the digital world as you explore photography with Jerry Freedner or digital art with Gary Finelli. The Art School’s 360 degree views of farmlands continue to inspire: work outdoors in our garden in Abstracted Landscapes: Plein Air or capture the golden light of an autumn afternoon in Light Studies with Eileen Murphy.

Exciting possibilities arise as you combine pastel and acrylic to create semi-abstract landscape with E S DeSanna, or combine media with sculpture in Assemblage & Collage, and narrative with book-making in Book & Narrative with Nancy Kohler. Focus on line in Pen & Ink, or learn to work from a live model in Gesture Drawing, both with Maj Kalfus.

As fall wanes, collect and study the unique forms of seeds, pods, and other organic forms and learn how they relate visually and conversationally in How to Speak Botanically with Sara Pruiksma.

Finally, join us for one-hour drop in classes December 2 and 9 from 1-2 or 2-3 pm: explore drawing, collage and mixed media, all materials provided.  Many of our classes are open to students age 15 and up.  Register for classes here and the application for our scholarship program (which funds up to 90% of class tuition) is here.

See you soon at the school!
