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.

Painting Studio (B)
Fridays: March 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, April 7; 10 am-noon
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. At the conclusion of the series, students will have the option to display and sell their work at Blick Art Materials during May and June.

Printmaking: Metal Plate Etching Using Electrolysis
Thursdays: May 11, 18, 25, June 1, 8; 6–8 pm
Joslyn Members: 112.50; General Public: $132

Etching is a traditional intaglio printmaking process in which lines or areas are incised into metal plates using a chemical process. These lines and areas hold ink that is transferred to paper using a press to make the image of the print. For this class, electrolysis - a safe and easy alternative to acid etching - will be used to explore the basics of this printmaking process.
Instructor: John Rogers
