The Boca Raton Museum Art School pursues numerous formal and informal structured activities intended to inspire and train the community in various traditional and experimental creative media techniques. Through the art of teaching, critique, demonstration, and discussion groups large and small, our faculty and students explore what creativity means through guided projects in various studio environments.

 

It is the school’s direct intention to inspire and expand the practice of creative artistic expression among all age groups and abilities in a multi-disciplinary environment supported and enriched by artistic influences both local and global in reach. Through classroom, gallery, and social activities, the school emphasizes the benefits of studio thinking to inspire our patrons to improve their lives and communities both aesthetically and through the creative thought process. 

 

 

WHAT’S    NEW    AT    THE    ART    SCHOOL?

 

 

 

Tom Joule eagerly shares the latest news with The Rickie Report about the Art School.  “We announce our September classes and now you may reserve your seat online by using our  “touchless” registration process. Select classes that you are interested in (Painting, Ceramics, etc.), then the specific session you are interested in by clicking the red “register” button beneath the course days and times”.  

 

“Only our September classes are available at this time, as we test our new system live (and welcome all feedback from you as you navigate our new website).  New courses for October and beyond will be added shortly, so stay tuned!  Strict reduced enrollment requirements are being implemented so you may properly distance while in class as well as requiring anyone who enters the building to wear a mask at all times for your own safety and to protect those around you”.

 

 

 

 

WHAT    IS    REALLY   IMPORTANT?

 

 

Tom goes on to say, “It is during times of crisis that it becomes much easier to recognize and prioritize what is most important in our lives. We can see quite clearly that the Art School without students and teachers and classes is simply an empty building. Reserving a spot in an Art class today is the best way that you can become reinvigorated by the community and friends that you have come to love over so many wonderful years and ensure creative and rewarding learning opportunities for new faces and future generations”.

 

 

FALL    SESSIONS

To better serve our students and community, the Art School has been hard at work creating new and improved teaching programs, class structure and delivery methods. Our core instructors have been instrumental in helping us expand our session and workshop offerings to provide students with a rich and full learning experience.

 

 

 

 

 

Ceramics

 

 

Art meets form and function. Our ceramics instructors and classes will indulge your senses as you literally dig and carve into the 3D form, sculpting, molding, spinning, melding, and stamping to create artistic expressions or useful every day objects such as bowls, mugs, and decorations that everyone will want to call their own or simply create that perfect gift for the impossibly meaningful person in your life.

Painting

 

 

 

 

There is likely no artistic discipline with a more varied approach to individual expression and community voice than painting! From minimalist, collage, and expressionist approaches, to oil and hyper-realism, our huge variety of developmental to advanced painting classes are sure to challenge your creativity and inner voice while making lifelong friends.

Drawing

 

 

 

Like the piano is to music, drawing is the foundation of all art. Learn about lines, silhouettes, shading, form, gestures, movement, motion, dynamics, even color and emotion as you build your confidence in your observation and visual communication skills. Think you can’t draw? Spend a week with us and find out how fun it is to be wrong!

Jewelry

 

 

Wearable art or objects of desire. Art that makes you go WOW! Combine materials, techniques, imagination, and vision to decorate your life and your style by joining our jewelry program today!

Photography

 

 

 

 

I remember that feeling like it was yesterday. That’s just the way I remember us. Can you believe that hair? I can’t believe you captured that moment! I never looked at the world that way before. Gorgeous. Ugly. Funny. Innovative. Compassionate. Love. Hate. An image literally expresses thousands of words, phrases, and feelings all at once and these days can go viral on digital platforms within minutes. Expand or narrow your vocabulary in our open and welcoming environment where award winning photographers help you find your voice through various lenses.

Ikebana

 

 

 

Sogetsu Ikebana is for everyone everywhere. Is is the art of flower arrangement, rooted in tradition, but ever-changing. The Japanese characters of the Sogetsu School (Ryu) represent grass, moon, and stream. Grass grows everywhere, the moon is seen by everyone, a stream is always moving. The art form is a product of skill and creativity using flowers, branches and either conventional or unconventional materials in order to express the beauty and harmony of nature and the imagination and creativity of the designer.

Youth

 

 

 

 

There is no humanity without creative expression. There is no motivation without the ability to express individualism as well as our collective voice. Allow our Youth Art Classes to guide your family through the informal and formal processes of artistic expression in a welcoming and supportive environment guided by discipline, historical context, current events, and how individual and group visual movements and communication methodology contribute to society. Fun and approachable projects are interwoven with intellectual conversations, support, and insights encouraging individual growth and confidence.

Radical    Jewelry    Makeover!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those tangled chains, unmatched earrings and banged up bracelets sitting at the bottom of jewelry boxes around the South Florida area are exactly what jewelry artists participating in ​Radical Jewelry Makeover – South Florida ​want to get their creative hands on. Last Fall, RJM – South Florida had a call for donations of broken, unwanted, lost pieces of jewelry and the community definitely responded! They received 115 donations of jewelry for the students and artists to use as their raw materials for the made-over jewelry pieces that will be on display at the LAC gallery beginning March 19, 2020. Sales benefit student scholarships and the Ethical Metalsmiths’ efforts to educate and connect people with responsibly sourced materials.

 

 

RJM draws attention to the creativity and skills of local jewelry designers, reveals the stories behind their personal collections and encourages re-consideration of their habits of consumption. Currently, materials used in jewelry production are sourced from some of the poorest countries in the world, sacred lands and disputed territories. Often this sourcing comes at a great cost to the environment. At the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, RJM brings together volunteer “miners,” who dig out and donate their old jewelry, with volunteer jewelers and students, working together as refiners and designers to collaborate on an exhibition of re-made jewelry.

Did you know Titanium is mined in the State of Florida? Heavy minerals like Titanium have been mined in Florida since 1916.  Titanium can be found in the sand of many of the beaches that line our State and is used for a variety of things from paint and makeup to helicopters and spacecraft.  Today, the EPA estimates that hard rock mining is the most toxic industry in the United States. Additionally, Earthworks reports that an estimated 70% of the gold mined each year is used for jewelry, and that a single gold ring leaves more than 20 tons of mine waste.  Ethical Metalsmiths, an artist run non-profit organization seeks to galvanize mining reform efforts by staging an “alternative supply chain” and worked with the Lighthouse ArtCenter with the Armory Art Center and Resource Depot to bring their successful project, Radical Jewelry Makeover ​​to South Florida.

 

 

 

About Ethical Metalsmiths  is a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage social change that values jewelry made with ethically sourced materials. They do this by educating people about irresponsible mining, promoting transparency in jewelry supply chains and highlighting the collective efforts of jewelers actively changing their practices. ​Ethical Metalsmiths’ vision is a world in which people can create and enjoy jewelry made with materials from responsible sources that protect and sustain the earth, its peoples and cultures.​​www.EthicalMetalsmiths.org
