Perennial favorites such as comic book art, nature drawing, puppet making, ceramics, world art, and mixed media are on tap. A new class titled Chicano Art Infusion draws inspiration from the Museum of Art’s summer exhibition Chicanitas: Small Paintings from the Cheech Marin Collection, open through July 19. Still life and figure drawing are great options for blossoming teen artists.
Classes for adults include ceramics, glass fusing, and two workshops with artist Michael Poncé on beginning painting and painting from photography.
All children’s classes are $60, and adult classes range from $60 – $110. The Museum of Art accepts registrations with credit cards, checks, and cash during business hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 8am to 5pm. The Museum of Art is closed Sunday and Monday.
