Summertime is often filled with pools, vacations, sunscreen, and art… yes, art. CCAD offers adult and children’s workshops and classes that are a great opportunity to throw yourself into the creative community.
“CCAD is kind of an amazing place to be during the summer,” says Cat Sheridan, director of Continuing & Professional Studies.
Children can take one-week, half-day workshops during which they can explore a wide range of art techniques. For adults, CCAD provides an extensive variety of workshops and classes that fit all schedules including daytime, evening, and online formats.
“It is great to see people walk into our classes and then see the difference in them when they leave,” Sheridan says. “A lot of people leave here with bragging rights; they can say ‘hey this weekend I went to college and studied with CCAD students and faculty.’ They even have final pieces to show off.”
CCAD brings summer art classes to a new level with the resources made available to participants. Those involved in the program will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and classrooms and will be provided with all the necessary supplies. Instructors are practicing artists and are a reliable source of information for students interested in the arts. Many classes and workshops are also assisted by current CCAD students.
“What really stands above the rest about this program is not only do participants have access to these resources, but they are also able to study with people who enjoy art as much as they do and explore along with them,” Sheridan says. “It is a pretty awesome deal.”
Children’s classes explore themes such as animation, drawing, digital art, ceramics, comic book drawing, printmaking, photography, and more. The classes are also broken down by grades, so students can study with peers in the same age group.
Adult programs are offered at a variety of times and intervals. Available classes include ceramics, fashion design, Photoshop, jewelry, website design, painting, welding, and more.
