The Crocker Art Museum will present more than 20 classes for children, teens and adults during the museum’s summer session of studio art and art history courses. Classes are designed for a range of skill levels and led by skilled teaching artists.
Summer art experiences for children are particularly bountiful, with weeklong classes offered in morning and afternoon sessions for students ages 6 to 17. A special “Summer Portfolio Class” also will be offered for teens. Offerings range from cartooning and painting to anime and clay.
Highlights for adults include a one-day master class with acclaimed ceramist Tony Natsoulas and a six-session workshop exploring Chinese brush painting.
Several classes connect to “The Summer of Impressionism” exhibition series: “From Tone to Line” is a weeklong Impressionist painting class for all skill levels, while “Plein-Air Painting” takes participants into the great outdoors for inspiration and lessons.
There are also great classes for the weekend artist, such as “Weekend Watercolor” and “Maps as Art and Maps in Art.”
The Crocker’s studio art and art history classes, offered quarterly, are designed to encourage students of all ages and abilities to unleash their imaginations while receiving formal lessons in a variety of media.
