Art Classes for Adults & Teens

Until Joslyn reopens in 2024, we are bringing art and inspiration to sites around town, including art classes held at Joslyn's Kent Bellows Studio, located at 3303 Leavenworth Street.


Alternative Textures

Joslyn Members: $93.50; General Public: $110

Paint your own abstract masterpiece using acrylics with the elements and principles of design as your guide. Learn unconventional methods for creating texture, such as using beads, pumice stone, and sawdust, while also learning to use traditional methods and mediums, like crackle paste and impasto techniques.

Painting Studio (A)

Joslyn Members: $112; General Public: $132

Explore basic painting techniques using watercolor and acrylic in this guided studio series. Students new to painting will receive specialized instruction each week. More experienced artists will enjoy working independently, with a variety of supplied materials and tools, and a knowledgeable instructor as a resource for questions or critique. Two series are available; sign up for one or both. At the conclusion of the second series, students from both series will have the option to display and sell their work at Blick Art Materials during May and June.
