Learn the fun of working on the potters wheel! This class offers plenty of instruction & demonstrations for those just starting or will bring a higher level of skill for those who have already taken a wheel class. Clay is fun!
In this exciting class you will do many projects such as cabochons for jewelry, mosaic hanging picture on plywood, nugget flowers, key chain or book mark using either flame worked beads or cabochons, fan pulls, suncatcher, nature printing on glass and a mirror. A fun week of creativity!
Have you ever wanted to learn how to paint with oils? Now is your chance! Have fun painting whatever you choose; I will have a selection of photographs for you to choose from or if you feel confident, bring your own. Classes will be fun and informative – bring all of your questions about painting!
Learn to create mosaics using many types of materials. This class will stretch your imagination of what can be used to create art. You will end up with keepsakes that will last a lifetime all while learning a new craft. If you have already done mosaics you can learn to step up your craftmanship. This class is fun!
Drawing is the first step. Most comic art, paintings and designs start with a drawing. You’ll draw natural and man-made objects in this class. *4-day week $108 ACM Members, $133 Future Members
The only thing you need is your imagination! Build monsters, animals, houses, people – whatever you can think up I can help you build. Let’s spend a week bringing your ideas to life in clay.
Create wearable art in this fun action-packed class. Work in copper or silver* while learning how to solder, set stones and create your own look. *Silver is available for an additional fee.
Let’s explore the basics of photography! This series is all about seeing things in a whole new way. We’ll be learning about composition, color, perspectives and more as we critique our work in progress. Weather permitting, we will explore Bradenton’s fabulous Riverwalk and a picture perfect stroll down Old Main Street looking for unique images in plain sight.
Film as a medium has been a staple in American households since the 1950s—now, almost everyone has the ability to watch and record in our pockets. Everyone’s got a story or two, so everyone can make a film or two, too! Focusing on film as a form for telling a story, this class will culminate in the creation of a short film—narrative or documentary, as chosen by the student—filmed utilizing a smartphone, or other (most likely consumer-grade) recording equipment of their choice (none of which will be provided by the class.) Students will learn the process to submit their films to festivals worldwide, and the class’ work will be screened together at ArtCenter Manatee’s Annual Showcase. Students will also be introduced to films from around the world, and will learn the collaborative process of the form through workshopping their scripts, or concepts
