Start the New Year with a new hobby or a fun way to pass the winter blues by participating in an art class. Artistry’s winter programs, from January through March, includes painting, drawing, clay and glass classes for adults, and some special Saturday sessions for young people including an opportunity to make unicorn pillows.  

In Artistry’s studio spaces at Bloomington Center for the Arts, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road, participants will broaden their creative thinking, concentrate on the task at hand and enjoy a meditative rhythm.

“We know that after such a long time, many people feel they need a refresher or are eager to start something new,” Artistry’s On-Site Learning Manager Chelley McLear said. “This coming season, we have a sampler class on Thursday afternoons that will give students the opportunity to try drawing, watercolor painting and acrylic painting. We also have beginner classes in glass art, in drawing, and in watercolor painting. All supplies will be included in these beginner classes so that participants can try the class before investing in their own
art materials.”

Over 20 in-person classes are listed on the Artistry website, Class sizes will be limited to eight students per class to ensure safe distancing and time for one-on-one interaction with the teaching artists.
