MICHIGAN CITY, IN – WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12 – Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) invites community members to get creative this spring. The center’s newest lineup of classes, workshops and camps offers plenty of opportunities for area children and adults to pursue their artistic passions.
LCA’s spring session begins Monday, March 16. Adult offerings range from one-day workshops to multi-week classes. In Mary Ann Pals’ Weekend Floral Pastel Workshop, participants will have the opportunity to render a close-up of a flower inspired by the work of Georgia O’Keeffe. Michelle Wiser’s Watercolor Plus class invites students to learn both classic and contemporary techniques in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Children ages 8 and up can explore The Art of Comic Book Storytelling with instructor Eric David Edson. In this 6-week class, students will learn a variety of visual storytelling techniques – including figure construction, perspective and page layout – to help them craft narratives that are both easy to follow and visually striking. Registration is also open for LCA’s fun-filled summer camps. Topics include “Lights, Camera, Action,” “Electric Art” and “Roll the Presses: Intro to Printmaking.”
“Our camps are so special because they offer in-depth discovery of art-related topics and projects in a small, relaxed classroom setting,” says Hannah Hammond-Hagman, LCA’s Education Director. “Students are exposed to methods and materials that they might not otherwise have access to, and they have lots of studio time to make work that is meaningful to them.”
Scholarships are available for all LCA classes, workshops and camps to help eliminate barriers and ensure everyone in the community has access to compelling arts experiences. To register, visit www.lubeznikcenter.org or call (219) 874-4900.
