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.

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.

"You Take Such Liberties" by Raymond P. Neubert

“You Take Such Liberties” by Raymond P. Neubert

Ray Neubert will be teaching a new course called “Being The Artist You Were Meant To Be”, at The Armory’s new facility in Lake Worth.  This class is meant for artists who are tired of being told what and how to create and keep ending with their art looking like the teacher’s work or other more famous artists. The class begins on September 2nd – October 21st and run for 8 weeks.  
"

“Ray Neubert”

Ray explains, “Each week we will have an assigned task which we will review at the beginning of the next lesson.  This is not a class in how to make great art but to focus on what individual great art is in each of us and how to tap into our life experiences to uncover it.  I will not tell you what your journey is but encourage you to explore the possibilities the journey can be.  Personal experiences from all participants will be explored.  Each week will begin with a discussion, continue with exploration of the topics in our personal experience with our art and end with an assignment to be worked on for the following week.”
by Raymond P. Neubert

by Raymond P. Neubert

“Such subjects as…Honesty…Personal Preferences…’The Outliers’…’Cosmos’…Surviving Critiquing…Successes & Failures…Likes and Dislikes…Problem Solving and Best Time To Work.  New topics will be explored as they arise.  Our first assignment will be to bring sketching materials and at least one large object for group sketching to the first class.  In eight weeks we will each create a personal work of art which we will use to begin to explore and document what we each are meant to be as an honest and unique artist.  We will also compile a list of long term and short term goals” Ray says.

Ray Neubert’s work ” is influenced by my father’s word play, comics of all genres and heroic Propaganda Art.  My NeuArt began in 2009 when I combined drawing, colored ink and word play on lined paper in saturated colors.  I continue with Metamorphosis in acrylics on canvas.”
