New Year Freebies

To kick off 2017, consider taking advantage of one of the special free events scheduled in the Art Education Building. Lea Gallardo’s Digital Camera Class January 7, Drawing Lessons with UNF’s Nofa Dixon February 3 & 10, a Printmaking Experiential on February 4, and Painting Demo by Elio Comacho on February 26 offer wonderful opportunities for growth and enjoyment.  In addition, beginning on January 29 and running for four weeks, “Sunday Afternoon Art Flicks”  will be featured on our big screen in the Education Center. Each week, a different video focused on the life of a famous artist will be featured and popcorn and soda will be provided.  Showtime is at 3 PM and no registration is required.   For information on other classes and events visit our workshops page.
