This pop up exhibition of his captivating paintings allows our patrons to own a piece of this history. During this short window of time, Mahlon Cline’s works are available for your collection and are perfect for gift giving during the holiday season.

These items make perfect, functional gifts!  Work in our state-of-the-art ceramic studios with instruction from our experienced faculty. Book a three-hour party for an evening or Saturday. Our happy hour package is available upon request. Minimum of six students.  Please reserve your group at the registrar or call (561) 832-1776.





In this one-day workshop students will have fun creating copper cuff bracelets by using beautiful textures and folding techniques. Demonstrations will include folding metal, the application of various textures using the rolling mill, surface finishes, and use of the torch. No experience is necessary




Enjoy your evening learning how to size, solder, texturize, and nish silver rings for each other! Everyone will learn the basics of how to use the torch to heat things up. No experience is necessary and all materials are included. Please wear closed toe shoes.





Turn your own 2D art or personal photographs into permanent displays. Using a laser printer, students will copy and crop an image to the desired piece of glass during the first session of the class. The following week the paper backing will be removed and color additives will be discussed. A final kiln firing will complete the process. Come to class with a collection of photos or drawings (12”x 8” max. size) to discuss which would work best for the process. Completed pieces can be picked up three days after the final class.





This class focuses on the basics of drawing lines, shapes, shades, perspectives and proportions.  students will use materials such as charcoal, pen, and pencils while learning each medium’s unique qualities to make 2D shapes appear 3D. This class is the foundation for all other visual art media because, as Michael Las Casas says, “Your paintings are only as good as your drawings.”








Students will learn the basic techniques for creating high quality photographs of artwork for exhibitions, personal portfolios, school, and much more. Students will learn camera settings, controlling lighting, and creating a set-up to photograph 2D, 3D, and small objects.
