Enrollment is happening now for fall art classes at CityArts that begin in September and extend through the end of the year. The fall schedule includes classes for all ages as well as ArtCore sessions for kids when school is out. Scholarship funds are available through the Arts Council on a first-come, first-served basis. More information about enrollment and scholarships is available by calling (316) 350-3245 or stopping by CityArts at 334 N. Mead in Old Town Square.
Adult classes include multiple levels of DSLR Camera Basics and a variety of drawing, ceramics, fiber, sculpture, silversmithing and painting classes. CityArts is proud to be the only location in the region to offer glassblowing classes, a unique opportunity for anyone who has ever wanted to learn this ancient art. There are nine brand-new classes on the schedule for the fall – Faux Marbling with Acrylics, Portrait Painting With Oil and Drawing with Ink and Brush, just to name a few. The fall session also brings the introduction of three-week mini-sessions in December that are perfect for the busy artist.
Fans of CityArts’ Leonardo Da Vino workshops will have three more opportunities to enjoy the popular Friday night activity on Oct. 31 (painting), Nov. 14 (mosaics) and Dec. 19 (painting). As always, students provide the wine or other beverage of their choice and CityArts provides the art project.
Youth options include a wealth of classes that range from leather crafting to digital art to drawing. For younger artists, CityArts is offering multiple sessions of its four-week Art for Tots class for children ages 3-5.
CityArts’ youth ArtCore program continues this fall with two half-day workshops on Veteran’s Day and a week’s worth of workshops over winter break. Young artists will have the chance to learn about optical illusions, art from various cultures, the combination of art and science and so much more.
