Housed in an historical Art Deco building, the armory encourages artistic expression for both budding and experienced artists. The next 8-week session of adult classes begins January 5 and runs through February 28. Classes include Wheel Throwing 101 for those who have never worked on ceramic potterâs wheel, Advanced Photography with a Cell Phone, Classical Charcoal Drawing, Botanical Drawing, and the Art of Chinese Brush Painting. If you donât have the time or inclination to take a series of classes, the armory also offers a number of one-day workshops. You might study oil painting, jewelry wire-working, color and emotions, and more esoteric subjects such as Kumihimo, the Japanese art of braiding.
