Fall 2020 Creative Workshop classes

Our hands-on art classes are taught by artist-teachers, and frequently inspired by art on view in the museum. Since 1949 we have been teaching, inspiring, challenging, and encouraging all ages. We love to help you make the artwork you never thought you could make.

Rachael Baldanza Sketchbook Challenge

30 Day Sketch Book Challenge

May 15—June 13, 2020 | Inspiration

We are all at home – why not have fun sharing art? Your Creative Workshop friends Emily (art above) & Rachael have kept many, many sketch books in their lives. As they were recently looking through old journals & sketchbooks, they thought about creating a new version ~ a 30 day challenge of sorts, curating and sharing YOUR work! You shared your art with us and we posted to our social media and here. You had fun, made it family friendly & shared it with us.

Lucy Burne Gallery Exhibitions

This exhibition space will be open when Creative Workshop classes are in session.

Each Creative Workshop student – adult, teen, or child; newcomer or “frequent flyer” – has a chance to show at least one piece of artwork in the Workshop’s Lucy Burne Gallery or in our new online art exhibition space. To learn more about how to show your art, contact Baldanza, Rachael, Curriculum Director, 585.276.8956
