Adult classes at Studio Arts are perfect for beginning students and for the more experienced artist who desires individual guidance and relaxing studio time. Our instructors are working artists who understand that considerate, supportive instruction will help your creative spirit expand so you can rapidly gain new skills. No “killer critics” here. Just check out our studio. It is alive with the glowing energy of the children who have just finished their class. Their work is always available for viewing to inspire your grown-up soul.

 


Creating With Heart

Some of us are blocked creatives, dreaming of a day when expressive freedom flows from the center of our beings. Balance, connectedness, community, and self-honoring are our deepest longings. This 13-week class provides the tools you need to discover your blocks and clear them. Our circle will provide support as the awesome power of creativity transforms your path. Joanna Jacobus, psychotherapist, and Barley Vogel, visual artist and Studio Arts director, facilitate this spirit-centered class with art play and process work. Join other artists, musicians, dancers, writers, poets, and serious dreamers who wish to work “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. Purchase the book for the first class and read through Chapter One. You will receive a special notebook for homework pages, and art supplies for projects. Next session is Spring 2010!  To get on our class wait list, email studioartsregistrar@gmail.com

The Art Class for Adults

Just like our classes for kids and teens, The Art Class for Adults is designed for fun and success. We take the same project based method we use to teach technique with simple instruction to our children and teens with same amazing results for adults. Honor your creativity and make art with other folks who feel the need for some fun and connection in the midst of big world stuff. Also a great class for working artists to  get started up again, identify and work through any blocks.

****Zoom version will allow for using any supplies you have at home. We can also provide a basic supply list for those who would like one.
