Acrylic Painting - Students paint subjects of their choice or work on a project with the instructor. Each participant completes two paintings during the session.

Acrylics Made Easy - This course is designed to teach students of all skill levels (beginners, intermediate and advanced) an easy way to produce beautiful art with Acrylic Paints.  Each student will complete two paintings along with the instructor or may paint subjects of their own choice while learning the essential skills of Acrylic Painting. 

Watercolor Painting - Students paint subjects of their choice or participate in a weekly exercise demonstrated by the instructor. Classes discuss the application of color theory as well as the principles and elements of design. A gentle critique is held at the end of each session.

Creations in Clay- Class is held in the Ceramic Studio at the SFSC Art Department.  Students use clay and pottery tools to learn various techniques for this sculptural medium. Glazes are applied and projects are kiln fired.
