Classes at Artworks
Tricia Fagan says "Indulge yourself and get in touch with your creative
side by taking one or more classes at ARTWORKS this summer. To help with
your scheduling, all the fine arts classes offered at ARTWORKS this summer
are short, sweet, and a lot of fun, taught by outstanding artists and
instructors. There are great outdoor painting classes for people who dont
want to miss the good weather and indoor classes for people who enjoy
the air conditioning. Learn an exciting, specialized art form like encaustic
or woodcut printmaking or indulge in an art class like mural painting
or jewelry-making that could open new career opportunities for you."
