No Summer Vacation for Artists
The longest running class we have at BelmarArts is Drawing and Beyond. Launched in 2009 by Sven Widen and Lizzie Schippert, the focus of the class is on still life, whether the interest is in portfolio prep (high school or college) or just improving one's skills. Students sign up for 6 week segments and can explore a variety of media. For example, today there was an elaborate and colorful still life set up in the back room of the Boatworks for artists working with paint or pastels. The side room had a group of teens using pencil in exercises involving both simple geometric and complex organic shapes.
The class meets almost every Thursday, is open to teens and adults, and can be attended as either a two or three hour class. For more information, check out the class page on our main website, or contact the main office during regular business hours.
