Richmond Art Center opens its Fall 2020 class registration with expanded online art class listings. The Fall 2020 session offers over forty classes by nearly thirty different teaching artists, including old favorites and beloved teachers, as well as new offerings for kids, adults and families.
Oil painting, figure drawing, ceramics and watercolor classes are back. Listed alongside media chosen especially for online at-home learning and offering students new means for expression; journaling, digital art, Zoom games, and embroidery.
“We have something for everyone!” says José Rivera, RAC’s Executive Director. “Including new intergenerational classes where people of all ages can learn together and from each other. These are difficult times, and I’m continually amazed by the ingenuity of our teaching artists in adapting and innovating to find ways for people to stay creative and move forward through art.”
The Fall 2020 Session features classes for adults, kids, teens and mixed/all ages groups. New classes include Jade Fair’s Planting Creativity (herbalism and mixed media), Lauren Ari’s Inward Spiral (guided drawing for play and relaxation), Charlyn Griffith-oro’s XENOGENESIS (Black sci-fi making space), Leah Yael Levy’s Comics Lab (comics and visual storytelling), and Feral Fabric’s Backpatch, Banner and Flag Workshop (sharing messages through fabric).
And… Date Night returns! Date Night is a monthly night of socializing and art-making. On October 2, 7:30-9pm the event will be hosted by artist Dawline-Jane Oni-Eseleh who will teach participants to make their own zines. (BYOB, sliding scale to participate.)
