ADULT ART CLASSES - August 17, 2007

Faculty Brings Exciting Adult Classes to the Brookline Arts Center

(Brookline, MA – May 9, 2007) This summer at the Brookline Arts Center, both new and returning Brookline Arts Center instructors are bringing fun classes for adults. The summer semester at the Arts Center begins in July.

New faculty member Yaron Dotan leads Drawing: From Simple Surfaces to Hyperrealism. In this class, students will learn how to depict surfaces such as wood, soil, hair, skin and metal with graphite pencils. The end result will be drawings that visually capture how these objects feel. Dotan also teaches a Drawing in Ink class for children ages 9 and up.

Bob Collins, a familiar face among the BAC faculty, brings New Views: Workshop in Drawing and Painting, to the Arts Center. New Views combines Collins’ two most popular classes into one special summer workshop. Students of all experience levels are welcome to take this workshop to study the human figure and the qualities of abstract painting.

Comics for Adults is another new class taught by a returning teacher. Comics for Adults instructor Raul Gonzalez is the illustrator for the comic book series Attorney Man, which has caught the attention of The Boston Globe and The Wall Street Journal’s law blog. He has previously taught drawing to both adults and children at the BAC, and is also teaching How to Draw Manga Comics to older children and teens this summer.

Students interested in sculpture can choose from Sculpting with Paper, or one of the three portrait and figure sculpture classes. For adults interested in working with fiber, there’s nuno felting, the process of adhering the finest merino fibers to silk gauze to make beautifully layered fabrics, or batik. In both the nuno felting and batik classes, students can make scarves, bags, clothing or artistic wall hangings.

Other classes from past semesters are also running, including pottery, metalsmithing, and enameling. The Arts Center is also sponsoring a field trip to the Potters Studio, for ceramics students who wish to learn about raku firing, a Japanese method of glazing. This one-day workshop will take place on Friday, August 17.

The Brookline Arts Center is located at 86 Monmouth Street and is convenient to public transportation.
