This is a self-paced, take home class with instruction provided via recorded video. The timeline and process is:

  • Pick up supplies between January 19 and 23.
  • You should complete your project and return it to the Art Center absolutely no later than Tuesday, January 26. You will also need to return some of the supplies.
  • Fired pieces will be ready to paint by February 2nd. If public health guidelines allow, students can paint their pieces using acrylic paints in the Art Center classroom at their convenience. If everything is still virtual, we'll send a paint kit home.

This class is designed as a companion to our winter exhibit - The Art of Being Black: Conversation and Experience. Learn more about how artists express their identity and life experiences through art by visiting the exhibit, January 11 through April 1.

Thanks to our presenting exhibit sponsor - PNC Bank - for helping us keep registration costs low for exhibit-related programs.
