Register Now For Summer Workshops!

Workshops at the Art Center are a great way to get your art-making fix without committing to a full semester of classes. Summer might be winding down, but we have a full roster of workshops still on deck for the month of August. Check them out below and sign up today!



New! Spinner Rings
Saturday, August 18, 10 AM–4 PM
Instructor: Elizabeth Tokoly
Spinner Rings are great everyday entertaining/mediation jewelry. Learn to texture and form concave and convex rings. Learn how to make twisted wire rings or thin band rings to spin around your concave ring. The focus will be on hammer, stamping, and flex shaft textures. Students will make one of each ring.



Watercolor Monotype
Saturday & Sunday, August 18–19, 1–4 PM
Instructor: Judy Mensch
Create vibrant monotypes using watercolor as a print medium. After printing your first layer of color, create depth and visual interest by adding layers of transparent and/or opaque watercolors. Experience using waterbased paint, various papers, registration, transparent films, large flat areas of color, and textures in your work. There will also be an opportunity to try stencils and add waterbased colored pencils and crayons to your prints.



Get Groovy! Under the Sea Painting on Velvet
Sunday, August 19, 10 AM–4 PM
Instructor: Mary Jean Canziani
Create a painting so vibrant that the colors jump off the surface! Explore using velvet as canvas, which allows your colors to stand out and pop. Cool off in the heat of summer and take inspiration from the fascinating and radiant creatures found in the depths of the ocean. Paintings made in this workshop will truly glow!



Glazes Galore
Sunday, August 19, 10 AM–2 PM
Instructor: Lisette Bedoya
Need glaze guidance? Do you have unfinished pieces from last session? Learn techniques and ways to glaze your previously bisque-fired unglazed work. As long as you created the pottery using clay from the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, we can finish it! Bring at least five previously fired, never-glazed works to this workshop.



Painterly Silkscreen Printmaking
Sunday, August 26, 10 AM–4 PM
Instructor: David DiMarchi
Explore silkscreen printing in painterly and fluid techniques! In this course, artists will learn the basics of creating and printing painterly stencils, printing both unique and repeatable works of art! Using mono-printing and reductive techniques artists should anticipate completing this course with a suite of prints and a new toolbox of skills and processes ready to influence their own art practices. Beginner’s welcome, no experience necessary!
