Never Too Late to Create at Beck Center!
The second session of visual arts classes at Beck Center is about to start. A variety of classes are offered through Beck Center's Visual Arts Education program, including drawing, painting, and mixed media classes. Many professionally-recognized artists are on staff to share their knowledge and talents with students. Classes are designed to allow students to acquire the skills they need to fully realize their potential and create beautiful art.
The Beginner/Advanced Watercolor class with popular instructor Bernie Dettorre continues this fall, and teaches students clarity in design. Also, the new Traditional Rug Hooking for adults, provides students with the opportunity to create original stained glass designs through mosaic technique.
Cartooning classes are offered at introductory and advanced levels for ages 8 through 18, while the Life Drawing class uses the human form to teach shading and dimension (ages 18 and up). These class offerings, along with our Drawing Fundamentals for children and adults, round out the drawing program.
The mixed media classes and family-oriented classes are offered to provide individuals with an introduction to different kinds of materials and the use of color and line in creating art. The host of classes include Family Clay (ages 5 to 11), Kids-N-Art (ages 3 to 5), and Art Discovery Studio (ages 6 to 9). Students have the opportunity to try out different ways of art making, find out what they love, and then move on to concentrate on a specific art form.
The Pottery Studio, a very lively place, provides a fun learning experience that enables students to create functional and sculptural clay art. There are classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced children and adults. Teachers work with students at their own level, which leads to successful art making.
