Brooklyn Museum Opens Fall Art Classe Registration

In the Brooklyn Museum’s Gallery/Studio Program, students ages six to adult develop art skills through studying the Museum’s collections and exhibitions and experimenting with materials and creative techniques in hands-on classes. Fall classes include instruction in drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, and mixed media. Each class meets for ten two-hour sessions. Fall courses are offered on Saturdays and Sundays beginning October 1 and 2. No experience is required.

Highlights include a children’s class that explores the overlap between contemporary art and comic books called Hero Meets World (ages 10–12), a mixed media course called Sweet Sounds (ages 12–14) that investigates music in art, and a teen photography class (ages 15–17) that highlights portraiture and the 1920s exhibition Youth and Beauty: Art of the American Twenties. For adults there will be a mixed-media class that investigates memory in art through visiting the Sanford Biggers: Sweet Funk—An Introspective exhibition.
Registration forms, including payment in full, must be received by September 23. Early registration is encouraged, since classes fill up quickly. Tuition for students under 18 is $205 for members and $225 for nonmembers (including a $15 registration fee). Tuition for adult classes, which include open studio hours, is $220 for members and $240 for nonmembers.

At the conclusion of every semester, student work is exhibited in the Museum’s Education Gallery. Work by summer–semester Gallery/Studio Program students will be on view in the Education Gallery beginning with a reception on Saturday, September 17, from 3 to 5 p.m.
