School's In For Summer
Summer is here and most schools have begun their summer vacations, but at the Belmar Arts Council we run classes for all ages year round. Above are a few photos from today's first day of Susanna Anastasia's new six week oil painting workshop. Today she started with some instruction in the basics of effective composition, after which the students started sketching. Over the next five weeks, they will each develop and complete a landscape painting. Susanna will also be teaching a four day watercolor workshop in July.
Other offerings for this summer include Learn To Be An Artist Art Camp, a daytime class which has sessions for both ages 7 to 10 and ages 11 to 14; Drawing and Beyond / Portfolio Prep from Sven and Lizzie, an ongoing six week program featuring instruction in still life in a variety of media for teens and adults; Jewelry Classes with Kelly Previte, with workshops in beads, precious metals clay, preserved objects and coiled wire; Sugar Arts with Gerrie Vergona, where you can learn how to work with fondant and gum paste to create fancy decorations for cakes, etc; Visions Photographic Workshops, instruction in many aspects of photography led by Michael S. Miller, and Woodblock Printmaking, in which Paul Bonelli teaches the basics of carving designs in wood for printing on paper.
Details about each class, including what is covered, materials, fees, days and times, etc, can be found on the BAC main website. Go to the home page, and to the tab at the top of the page that says Classes, or stop by the Boatworks during our regular hours.
