2013 Winter Art Classes and Workshops at The Center for Contemporary Art
Bedminster, NJ December 18, 2012: The Center for Contemporary Art is excited to announce its winter schedule of art classes and workshops starting January 7th and running through March. There are sixty-two classes and workshops for adults and thirty-six offered for children ages four through teens. Classes are offered for artists of all ages and levels of expertise in a variety of media including oil and acrylic paint, pastels, colored pencils, watercolors, drawing, photography and ceramics. The “Art Sampler” offers true beginners a chance to experiment with a different medium each week in a relaxed, fun setting. The growing ceramics program offers classes for children and adults in both wheel-thrown and hand-built ceramics.
Special winter guest artists workshops “Painting with Pigment Sticks” with Lisa Pressman, and “Wet-Into-Wet Watercolor” with James McFarland offer unique one day opportunities for local artists. Other workshops offered include “Precious Metal Clay” with certified PMC instructor Becky Santora, two new Photography workshops with Stephen Harris, and “Build Your Online Presence as an Artist” with Lauren Smith.
In late 2012, The Center expanded its program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special needs. Working with the Bernards Parents of Exceptional Children, classes for two age groups are now offered each semester for a reduced fee.
In March The Center will again host two Youth Art month exhibits for Somerset County. This year offerings will include a Family Open House, a hands-on artist demonstration and a Professional Development Workshop for art teachers.
