Winter Classes are Warming Up

The whirr of the potter’s wheel … the metallic percussion from the jewelry studio … the scratch of pencil on paper … creativity can get a little noisy!

Winter classes are in full swing at The Art League, and that means our classrooms are humming along. What’s going on inside? Our students were kind enough to let us peek over their shoulders:

Watercolor exercises in Rachel Collins’s class.
(above and below) Making plates in Lori Katz’s ceramics class.

Painting portraits in Danni Dawson’s Thursday class.
(above and below) In the jewelry studio with Nick Barnes, students were filing, drilling, punching and more as they worked on individual projects.

(above and below) Two of the beautiful pastel paintings in progress in Nancy Freeman’s class.

Julie Booth’s surface design students were painting, printing, and stitching fabric.

Of course, this is just some of what’s been going on in the past couple weeks. Not pictured: stained glass, basic drawing, metal sculpture, clay sculpture, rug-making, weaving, intermediate photography, calligraphy, mosaics —

We could go on, but you get the idea.
