Are you ready to bring out your inner artist? Then take a fun art class at Creative Arts Workshop. Located less than fifteen miles from Shelton, CT, it's the largest community art school in the state. The school opened in 1961 and more than two thousand people enroll in classes each year.
There are more than four hundred options to choose from and they are taught by professional artists who also serve as instructors. Classes include:
Metalsmithing/Jewelry (Tuesday, January 10 - February 21)
During this seven week course, students will develop new skills or enhance existing ones. Beginners learn techniques by working on an assigned project, while those with previous experience will work on something more advanced. New students must attend the first class and each week the instructor will offer demonstrations that may include shaping, sawing, filing, surface embellishment, and soldering.
Pottery: All Levels (Wednesday January 11 - February 22)
This is a great course for those who are just getting started as it covers clay preparation, tools, trimming, wheel-throwing, pulling handles, and glazing. Students will focus on mastering the skills needed to make food serving dishes and a portion of each class will include demonstrations and exercises.
Paperback to Hardback (Wednesday January 11 - February 22)
