Give The Gift Of Art From Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery And School of Art! Register Now For New Classes And Workshops

What a great gift idea! Give the gift of creativity with a gift certificate to a Select Friday, workshop or class session at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art. Something that is unique, fun and will be so appreciated. Everyone knows someone that would love to discover, or perhaps rediscover, the joy of making art.  The ArtCenter has something for everyone; every experience level from beginning to professional, youth and adults classes, one-night Select Fridays, one- to three-day workshops or full eight-week sessions or Summer ArtCamp to choose from. Learn to paint and draw, dabble in ceramics, jewelry and glass or create mixed media masterpieces! There is also Open Studio time that students can use to extend time in the studio to work on their projects.  The Select Fridays are perfect for everyone who would like to create a piece of art, no experience necessary! The wide variety of mediums offers something for everyone.  The Rickie Report shares a quick overview of Select Fridays coming up in January and running through April, 2020.
