What's Included

Painting the Masters into the Present Susan Claffey Tuesdays 6:30-9:30 p.m. Oct. 27 – Nov. 17 $70 member / $110 non-member Supply list available This painting class is open to all levels of experience, from basic to advanced. Students may work in oil, acrylic, or both. Emphasis for all levels will be on the formal elements of composition, particularly shape, value and color. Each student will implement the style of a historic painter of their choice to create still life compositions using their own objects. Susan, who received her MFA from the University of Denver, taught at Colorado Mesa University for over 20 years and is excited to get back into the classroom. For the first class students should bring a pre-stretched, gessoed canvas between 18 x 24” and 30 x 30” in size, a copy of a still life composition by a historic painter, and objects to arrange for their still life.

About This Organizer

The Art Center is a community arts organization dedicated to improving quality of life by promoting the enjoyment and understanding of the visual arts and related arts through studio art instruction, educational programs for children and adults, exhibitions and the acquisition, care and display of a permanent art collection.

 

Inspiring educational classes and a commitment to providing access to art for all people have been at the heart of The Art Center's mission since for over 60 years. "Participatory," "experiential," and "artist-driven" are words that describe the variety of programming from traditional to contemporary offered year round. Everyone can take the creative plunge through educational activities that are free and open to the public or provided at low tuition rates thanks to generous donors and sponsors. You can even apply for one of our need-based scholarship. Everyone should be a part of this vibrant creative community, and now there is no reason not to pick up a brush, a dirty piece of charcoal or even throw a bowl on the potter's wheel. Welcome to The Art Center, where creativity is life altering.

There is a class request list if you do not find what you, your child or teen are looking for. The Art Center holds five class sessions every year in painting, drawing, bookmaking, photography, glass and much more. Our programs seek to inspire individuals of all ages to explore, develop and celebrate their creativity.
