Well, Fall is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing... BACK TO SCHOOL! But why should the kids have all the fun? Hey, don't roll your eyes... School CAN be a LOT of fun, provided you're learning something you REALLY want to learn, you've got an inspiring space to learn it in, and a patient enthusiastic teacher to teach you.
Lucky for you, there are a lot of opportunities for the entire family to pick up some new talents or brush up on old skills, in Baltimore this Fall. Between School 33 Art Center & MICA's Continuing Studies Program, you could learn printmaking, interior design, film & video, painting, mosaic & found object sculpture and more. And that's just the courses for YOU. Why not give those creative kids of yours an encouraging weekend art experience too? MICA has a fabulous series of programs for young people.
I will be stepping out of my studio for some valuable inspiration in the form of teaching two of the Young People's Studio courses this Fall:
Real & Fanciful Landscapes (Grades 3-5) Saturday 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM & Tell a Story, Draw a Story (Grades 2-4) Saturday 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM. Both classes run from September 13 to November 22, 2008
And for the "bigger kids" (that's you Adults), head over to School 33 for BEGINNING AND CONTINUING DRAWING for adults & young adults which will be offered at two different times & on different days, so you can pick the one that best suits your schedule; choose from Wednesday, Sept 17 – Nov 5, 6:30-9:30PM or Friday, Sept 19-Nov 7, 10AM – 1PM. Yes, you can learn to draw in eight weeks! Even if you’ve never picked up a pencil before, you’ll walk away with new skills & drawings you can be proud of. Individual instruction & student centered lessons make this the perfect class for the beginner AND the more experienced artist.
If you're ever thought "i wish i could do that", now's the time to act on it. Baltimore is FULL Of amazing teaching artists, so take advantage! For a full list of courses and more information about the local Artists YOU can work with, as well as registration and course information, visit School 33 & MICA/ Young People's Studio. Hope to see you in class!
