RAHWAY—Registration is now open for spring classes for adults, teens and children at Arts Guild New Jersey (formerly The Arts Guild of Rahway). Spring classes begin the week of March 22.
Classes for adults are offered during the daytime and evening. In Painting with Oils, beginners to advanced students work from still life displays, landscape and other sources to explore the technical, formal and creative aspects of painting with oils. In Acrylic Painting students at all levels learn the techniques used to paint with acrylics, including washes, glazing with acrylic mediums, and using gels and additives for texture. Beginners to advanced students in Watercolor explore this unique medium as they work with color, value, composition, and form. In Drawing, students at all levels learn the elements of art as they draw with graphite, charcoal, conte crayon and ink. Beginning Stained Glass and Intermediate/Advanced Stained Glass emphasize the skills and techniques of working with colored glass to create projects such as lampshades, window panels and even sculptural pieces.
Classes for teens and children are offered during after-school hours and on Saturday. Teens can explore drawing in Teen Drawing/Beginner to Advanced, a class that offers weekly demonstrations, projects designed to build skills, and an introduction to figure drawing. In Teen Printmaking 101, students learn the basic techniques of printmaking and have the opportunity to make one-of-a-kind and limited edition prints using an etching press. In Japanese Anime/Manga Style Cartooning, students learn the techniques of popular cartooning and animation to make their own comic art.
Kids use their imagination and build their skills in Kid’s Drawing, as they draw realistic and imaginary objects, people and landscapes. Children will also have fun creating artwork influenced by art from around the world in Art with the Masters. This class introduces young artists to historical works from many cultures and teaches them to apply the styles and techniques to their own art making.
Class space is limited so early registration is encouraged to ensure enrollment. Members receive a $15 discount on adult classes and a $10 discount on classes for children and teens.
