Fall fun at Peabody Art Center

September 17, 2012 by  

ArcWorks Community Art Center has announced its fall line-up of workshops and classes with fun for the whole family. Programs such as these may well be found included in catalog printing and distributed on the free newsstands in supermarkets and shopping malls.

Classes begin September 27 with pottery painting. Students will paint a French butter keeper and learn glazing techniques. The cost of this two-hour adult class with facilitator Peter Flister is $35.

A six-week introduction to clay will begin on October 3. Again, Peter Flister will lead this two-hour adult program, introducing beginner clay sculptors to both working by hand and on a wheel. This one costs $165.

A four-week Saturday morning printmaking program for kids beginning October 6 with Elissa Stopyra. Children aged 6 to 11 years will use a variety of materials to learn relief printing, both in black and white and in color. Printmaking for adults will begin November 6 and run for four weeks at a cost of $80 for this eight-hour program.

Furthermore, a unique program for children and their caregivers called ‘Express your heart’ will start on Sept 24 and will run for five weeks. Each Monday throughout the program, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, facilitator Natalie Blue will lead children aged two-and-a-half to four years old, as well as their caregivers, through a creative program. This costs $60 for five-weeks and course organizers promise it will be messy.

Peabody art lovers are encouraged to visit the Arcworks Community Art Center website for a complete catalog of fall programs.
