Studio Art Class for Adults

Each Wednesday, CAE opens its studio to everyone who wants to learn more about art.  On the first and second Wednesday of each month, CAE invites local and nationally recoginized artists to provide lectures, art demos, and other hands-on activities.  Be prepared to be engaged and look closely, think critically, and make a personal connection with art.



1st WEDNESDAY–Art Demonstration.  A local artist shares their  ideas or a process.

2nd WEDNESDAY–Artist Talk. Gain greater  insight and delve deeper into the history and context, styles and techniques of specific works of art or an artist.

3rd WEDNESDAY–Live Model/Still Life.  Practice your artistic skills working independently in the company of other  students and artists.  Bring your own supplies.

4th WEDNESDAY–Group Critique. Receive constructive criticism from your peers or set and learn the good and bad of a work of art.

5th WEDNESDAY–Free day to play in the CAE Studio.
