Our Spring Programming has begun – but is on hold!
The health and safety of our patrons, instructors, students, and staff are of utmost importance to the Council for the Arts. Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Council for the Arts will be closed for the month of April. We will be rescheduling all of the classes impacted by the closure and make-up dates for those classes will be announced soon.
Check out our New Location – just up the street: 103 North Main Street!
Students will use found objects such as rope and cardboard to create a unique self-portrait. During this class, they will explore texture and learn about facial proportions, while using unconventional materials not often found in the classroom to create original artwork. All supplies provided.
Instructor: Genevieve Yoder
Dates: Saturday, April 25th, 9:30 AM -10:45 AM
The Beauty of Abstraction
Join us as we spend three sessions focusing on the creative and expressive use of the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. We will discuss the similarities and differences between representational, abstract, and non-objective artwork. Each class participant will experience the freedom of deriving the essence of subject matter through the subtle use of simplification, color, contrast and space. Class members will work with a wide variety of materials to generate new ideas and fresh approaches to their chosen subject matter. Students are welcome to bring their own fluid media as well as canvas or paper.
Age: Adult & Teen
Instructor: Kate Keely
Dates: Fridays, May 1 - 15, 1:00 - 3:30 PM

Saturday Art Explorers: Picasso Faces!
