The Center for Contemporary Art Offers Fall Classes & Workshops
Bedminster, NJ August 13, 2013: The Center for Contemporary Art is excited to announce its fall schedule of art classes and workshops which starts on September16th and runs through December. There are forty-eight classes and thirteen workshops for adults and thirty-two classes for children ages four through teens. Classes are offered for artists with all levels of expertise in a variety of media including oil and acrylic paint, pastels, colored pencils, watercolors, drawing, photography and ceramics.
“Art Sampler” classes offer beginners a chance to experiment with a different medium each week in a relaxed, fun setting. The growing ceramics program offers a variety of classes for children and adults in both wheel-thrown and hand-built ceramics, as well as raku and ceramic sculpture.
Fall workshops provide unique one day opportunities for local artists and run the gamut from an in-depth exploration of color in “Color Scheme Game” with Chris Carter, to learning how to market your art in “Building Your Online Presence as an Artist” with Lauren Smith. For artists and art appreciators alike The Center is offering monthly two-hour Chelsea galley tours, and a trip to visit the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms.
In addition, The Center has developed a comprehensive curriculum for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special needs and offers classes for two age groups each semester for a reduced fee thanks to support from Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bernards Parents of Exceptional Children.
