Spring Classes

Register for Spring Classes

We will continue offering painting, jewelry making, life drawing and stained glass. Additionally, there is an exciting new workshop taught by Barbara Mann called Keum Boo and Roller Printing on Metal. It is an informative and fun one day workshop on Saturday, March 21. Students will experiment with the ancient Asian metalwork technique of Keum Boo, bonding 24 Karat gold to silver. Students will also learn how to add texture to metal by using a jewelers’ rolling mill to emboss the surface.
