Registration Now Open For Spring 2011 Classes At Arts Guild

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 on March 26 through 31 and run for eight weeks.

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 Adult 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. Drawing from Life & Photos gives students the basics of drawing to develop knowledge of composition, perspective, proportion, space, value, and texture using still life.

Classes for teens and children are offered during after-school hours and on Saturday.  A new class, Painting for Teens, provides instruction in composition using subject matter such as life objects, landscapes, and portraits; entails color mixing and painting with acrylics. 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 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 Drawing Exploration, as they draw realistic and imaginary objects, people and landscapes. In Sculpture for Kids, students build three-dimensional objects out of a variety of materials provided, and use of techniques such as shaping, carving, cutting, and more.

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.
