Let Your Inner Artist Grow at Beck Center!

It’s finally time to think spring (and summer!) so let your creativity grow with a class or workshop at Beck Center for the Arts. Whether you are interested in one-day music or pendant-making workshops, or an eight-week visual arts class, our dedicated faculty looks forward to getting creative with you.

First in line of our new music workshops is Rhythm Jams with Dave Brewer. Held on Saturdays, March 14, April 18, and May 9 (save $5 when you sign up for all three), this opportunity is open to drummers, percussionists, and hand drummers who want to explore the connection between rhythm and other art forms. This workshop is followed by Bluegrass & Americana with Thor Platter on Saturday, April 11, which focuses on repertoire, style, song arranging, and performing in the classic bluegrass style.

Beck Center is pleased to welcome back the Grammy Award® winning duo Cathy & Marcy for a fun and engaging Ukulele Workshop on Saturday, May 30. This workshop, for ages 10 and up, is designed for beginners and advanced ukulele players as groups will be divided by skill level.

Explore your inner-artist during our eight-week visual arts session that begins the week of March 23. Choose from a variety of offerings for all ages and artistic abilities from Family Clay Time, to Pottery, Drawing, Cartooning, and more. If you are interested in learning about a variety of mediums, try our eight-week Exploring Mixed Media workshop that begins on March 24. Teens and adults are encouraged to get creative with their digital picture-taking in the four-week Beyond the Selfie workshop, March 28-April 25. Also, learn how to navigate our visual world in The Secrets of Visual Literacy, a four-week workshop beginning April 30.

If you have always wanted to create your own piece of jewelry, local glass artist Daniel Pruitt of Daniel Pruitt Studios is leading our Fused Glass Pendant workshop on Saturday, March 15. Students ages 15 and up will create their pendant from 2 p.m. to 4pm, followed by a “fusing party” from 4 p.m. to 5pm. Snacks will be provided.

Fast-forward to the summer by registering for Summer Camps! We are offering full- and half-day camps in dance, music, theater, visual arts, and creative arts therapies for ages 5-19.
