Summer 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 don’t 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."
