Adults & Teens Art Classes this Fall @WCC!
Have you ever wanted to see the range of things you can do with paint? From learning about watercolor paints to thick layers of glossy acrylics, we will try it all! We will pour, brush, scoop, squeegee, and soak, creating unpredictable and surprising results. Even if you only plan to paint in a traditional way in the future, this will show you ways to use your materials that you never dreamt of before. Beginners and experienced artists welcome. $35 materials fee payable to instructor at class (plus registration). Bring your own canvas to paint on; sizes can range from 12"x16" to 18"x20".

Break out your creativity and have fun making a set of 4-6 holiday ornaments in this ceramic workshop!

Your ornaments will be stained and fired in the kiln, ready for pickup November 25--just in time for the winter holidays and decorations or handmade gifts. Please bring sketch paper, pencil, eraser, and a ruler to class. All other materials included. Ages 10 and up are welcome to register with an adult.
