Growing an already popular roster of classes and workshops for the community, CCAD’s Continuing Education (CE) office is now offering a lecture series.

“Adding a  lecture series just made sense,” said Cat Sheridan, director of Continuing Education. “A lecture is a great introduction to taking CE classes at CCAD and is convenient for someone who is just beginning to explore art instruction. For people who have taken classes with us before, these lectures offer something new for them to explore.”

“The lectures are interesting on their own, and are a nice professional development opportunity for people working in creative fields” added Sheridan. “However, the lectures are also a fun way to add value to a CE class you are already taking—for instance if you are taking a painting class you might want to check out the the Color Basics lecture and then apply what you learn during your next class session.”

Options include:

  • Developing a Critical Eye, Thursday, March 31, 6:45-9:30 p.m. Discussion will focus on what makes things visually appealing and how to critique and improve basic designs in your personal and professional life.
  • Color Basics, Thursday, April 7, 6:45-9:30 p.m. Come to explore the basic principles of color theory (how colors contrast, complement or work in concert) and leave seeing the world a little different.
  • Portfolio Development, Thursday, April 21, 6:45-9:30 p.m. This program introduces potential art students, parents, and art educators to the admissions process and success as an artist or designer. Learn what constitutes an acceptable portfolio, how to finance a private art school education, and where career paths lead.

Registration is $10 per lecture. All lectures are in the Canzani Center auditorium. Parking is free in CCAD parking lots (see Campus Map for lot locations).
