In-person art classes for adults are back at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn. Current offerings include two beginner clay classes and a beginner drawing class.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer in-person adult art classes again,” said Program Director Davana Robedee. “We are starting with our most popular classes, and we plan to add more.”
Here are the classes currently being offered:
- In-Person Beginning Wheel: In this six-week series, students will learn the foundational skills for throwing pots on the wheel: centering, basic throwing techniques, trimming, glazing, and more. 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays May 13 to June 17. Cost: $190 for members, $200 for nonmembers. Clay included; nominal fee for firing.
- In-Person Functional Handbuilding: This six-week series will introduce you to the basics behind handbuilding: how to go from a pinchpot to a pitcher, from a slab to a plate, from a coil to a mug. 1 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays May 25 to June 29. Cost: $190 for members, $200 for nonmembers. Clay included; nominal fee for firing.
- In-Person Beginning Drawing: Students will use a variety of subject matter to learn introductory drawing techniques like drawing from life, contour line drawing, and observation-based drawing. 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays May 13 to June 17. Cost: $170 for members, $180 for nonmembers.
The classes are being held in the spacious classrooms at the art center, 205 Genesee St., Auburn. However, students are still required to wear masks and maintain social distance. Space is limited in each class.
