Visual Arts Program Alive & Well!
WHAT ARE THE "VISUAL ARTS"?
The term “visual arts” means any original two-dimensional and three-dimensional pictorial, graphic, and sculptural work. It includes works of fine art as well as the applied, decorative arts and crafts. In other words, all types of drawings, paintings, pastels, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, fabric arts, jewelry design and more.
The Creative Arts Guild offers a variety of instruction in fine art media and employs qualified art professionals who have a passion for guiding and coaching both the more experienced artist as well as the beginner. Whether your interest (or your child’s interest) is in paint, clay, drawing, or other fine art form, the Guild intends to find just the right class to encourage that interest. Bradley Wilson, Visual Arts Director and Gallery Manager, invites everyone to contact the Guild office and ask about the learning opportunities available. (706) 278-0168.
Current classes include: Discovering Art, an exploratory class for children and teens; Acrylic Painting, beginners through intermediate levels; Painting & Drawing classes; Open Studio (coached) Painting for Teens and Adults; Life-Drawing Open Studio; Private Art Lessons (for all ages); and Art for Home-Schooled Children; and Pottery for children and adults.
