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!

 

 

https://bocamuseum.org/art-school/fall-sessions

 

 

 

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.

ART SCHOOL SAFETY PROCEDURES

 

We are committed to the health and safety of our students, staff, and volunteers. In consideration of all participating the Boca Museum Art School will follow current guidelines set by the governor of the State of Florida and local authorities.

 

The Art School has created a robust cleaning and sanitizing schedule. Masks will be required for adult instructors, staff, and volunteers. The students will be encouraged to wear masks as well and will be provided. We will adhere to social distancing in the classrooms with a maximum of 10 students per room as well as no rotating between rooms for activities. Each student will have their own set of materials and will not share supplies. Students will wash their hands upon entering the building and will go directly to their classroom. We encourage all students to use the hand sanitizing stations frequently that are placed in each classroom as well as throughout The Art School.

“Working With Scary Greens” by Ted Matz

 

 

Ted Matz has developed a series of weekly scheduled Virtual Painting Demonstrations that will concentrate on common problems that students have with their work, along with the concepts that can be applied to any medium. He tells The Rickie Report, ” Trailer videos are being planned and sent out 3 days prior to my demonstration videos. The trailers will be released on Mondays and the Demonstrations will occur on the following Thursdays. These are not live videos; the student can watch them at their own convenience”.

 

Once the viewer has completed the suggested exercises, they then may take a photo of their work, send the photo to Ted at tedmatz@comcast.net. Once that is received Ted will give a critique of the work that they completed.

 

To access the video demonstrations the student simply has to click on the link provided via email or on The New Studio website www.thenewstudiova.net

 

The trailers are designed to generate excitement about the demonstrations and also to inform people of what the subject matter will be for that week. The videos are tentatively planned to begin the week of March 23.

 

See tentative schedule below:

  • “Scary Greens”, March 23; In this video the world of greens will be demystified and the student will be shown how with a few simple color mixing techniques they can make rich, vibrant greens.

 

  • “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark”, April 2; Students have a tendency to paint with weak values and non-saturated colors, in this video they will learn how to challenge themselves to venture into the dark, enjoy it and make in the end make their lights sing.

 

  • “Being in the Red”, April 9; This video will illustrate how to keep the warm colors warm and avoid painting pink tomatoes. The student will learn how to layer color to make your reds more saturated in color and bring out the vibrancy of their color choices.

What does C4 stand for?

The four Cs of the 21st Century Learning Model which are the most important skills required for 21st century education:

Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity.

C4 at CCE allows for our students to Explore, Connect and Create.

 

 

 

Explore: 3rd – 5th grade students will participate in weekly 90-minute classes (5:45-7:15 PM) throughout the 10-month school year.

Connect: 6th – 8th grade students will participate in weekly 90-minute classes (6:30-8:00 PM) throughout the 10-month school year.

Create: 9th – 12th grade students will participate in weekly 90-minute classes (6:30-8:00 PM) throughout the 10-month school year.

 

 

 

Students can begin their experience participating in the C4 Series at CCE in 3rd, 4th or 5th grade in C4 Explore, a 3-year multimedia storytelling program. In C4 Explore, students gain hands-on experience with a variety of art forms and learn about their expressive power to tell stories and communicate ideas in different ways. They learn the various strengths and challenges inherent in each art form to carry meaning and how they become even more impactful when combined. In C4 Explore, students will experience Theatre, Visual Arts, Sound Design, and Media Arts connected through the theme of storytelling. Students begin with Theatre during which they learn how to express themselves and interpret meaning through movement, body language and dialogue. Students create original stories and take them through the other art units to develop further. In Visual Arts, they refine key details of the characters and scenes of their stories using drawing, painting and sculpture. In Sound Design, students learn sound recording and editing software on iPads to create the soundtracks of their stories including narration, dialogue, sound effects and musical underscoring. In Media Arts, students learn video and image editing software to combine their stories, visual artwork and soundtracks into complete video projects.

The C4 Connect and Create Media Arts program supports the academic success, social-emotional health and creative development of students by providing year-round project-based learning and work-study opportunities. C4 offers teens a transformative opportunity to master and apply skills in the areas of digital media production: digital cinema, graphic arts, and coding. The project-based curriculum teaches students to create persuasive, informative content and effectively communicate their stories and concepts through video projects (documentaries, PSAs, movies, etc.), digital animation, promotional campaigns, web design, and app development. Students receive expert instruction and guidance from industry professionals where they learn how to produce video projects, create animation, build promotional campaigns and design websites using industry-standard software and equipment in a facility mirroring professional creative spaces. These include a newly constructed and equipped 20-station iMac lab, recording studio and flexible theater space with 9’x16’ LED screen.

OUR IMPACT

We fill minds, not landfills. We turn almost 200,000 pounds of reusable stuff a year into classroom and alternative art materials, equipping educational programs, public workshops, and the weekend tinkerer with all sorts of unusual and inspiring resources to build, make and create with in Palm Beach County.

We have one focus in mind: inspiring individuals to make a difference in our world through environmental awareness and to participate in the ripple effect of taking small, but immediate action towards making your community a better place.

Tinker Lab Area

OUR HISTORY

1999
Resource Depot was founded. Members from the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County,Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County, the Palm Beach County School District and Florida Power & Light, came together to divert clean, safe, reusable materials that would otherwise be destined for the landfill into the hands of people who can use them for educational and artistic purposes.

2013
After several changes of location in the intervening years, we finally found the ideal home: 2510 Florida Avenue, off Belvedere in West Palm Beach. We made our big move in the fall allowing our role in the community to expand. We are still “the teacher place” but we are also SO MUCH MORE. We couldn’t be more proud of our space, and we invite you to visit any time during our shopping hours to check it out! Please note warehouse access policies.

2016
A look at what’s coming:
Making Resource Depot a Destination Location. With additions of:
Artist GalleRe
Creation Station
Drop Stop
Tinker Lab
And more educational programs on and off site for all of Palm Beach County.

 

 

 

Project Ideas!   Materials!  Recycle!  Reuse!
