The teens’ topic for Sept. 19 is “Who Am I? (Self-Portraits).”
Youth Art Classes that go more in-depth also meet once a month, starting Sept 14. The same times, costs and topics listed above apply on that day.
“Bottle & Brush” continues on Thursdays from 6:15 – 8:15 pm. Artist Jen Aldrich guides students through step-by-step instructions in creating acrylic paintings on canvas. Participants are encouraged to bring beverages and snacks. The cost is $35/student and includes all materials.
The monthly “Art Speak” session begins Sept. 21 with “Urban Art: Why Is It Important to a Community?” from 10 am – 12 pm. Aldrich will look at how graffiti and public art projects can help revive a community from decay and decline. This program is free and open to the public.
