Every Friday evening from 7 to 10 p.m., three instructors lead up to 30 students through their own renderings of a famous masterpiece, such as George Barbier’s fashion prints or Paul Cezanne’s Still Life with Pomegranate and Pears, in a process designed to build confidence even in those who have never painted before. Check the schedule for upcoming paintings; additional dates may be added according to demand.
Wild Child Arts & Quilt Shop
A fourth-generation artist, Rose Handy has always made time for creating. After a rollercoaster ride of life changes and moves, Rose and her potter husband Paul opened their own gallery and class space. Joined by a staff of illustrators, quilters, watercolorists, and other artisans, the owners encourage Wild Child students to find their own artistic voices, whether they're hand-building a ceramic bowl, painting a family portrait, or fusing glass pieces together to make a new glass family. The search for new avenues of creativity also extends to the studio's class offerings; beginning in January 2013, aspiring artisans can learn the intricacies of handbuilding and wheel-based pottery techniques as part of the shop's newest curriculum.
