Get Out (or Stay In) and Create with RoCA’s Winter Art Classes

Winter Art Classes at RoCA are starting Online January 4th and Onsite at RoCA January 19th!

Are you looking for an expressive arts experience? Do you feel as though you need to get some creative juices flowing? Or, perhaps with the Winter Solstice you want to calm your mind, rejuvenate through the process of art-making and let your mind escape the world around you for a few hours.

This winter, engage in a creative process. Rockland Center for the Arts (RoCA) is providing a wide range of studio art experiences for all ages and skill levels: on-site, outdoors and on-line. RoCA is following all protocols for safe social distancing with indoor classes spaced out and pottery studios divided into individual work stations. Students are
required to wear masks and social distance. RoCA’s online winter classes start January 4th. You can choose from a weekend workshop or 6 to 8-week session classes.

Whether you are a beginner or honing a skill, you can try a pottery class of wheel throwing, hand building or sculpture. Create lampworked glass beads on the torch for jewelry with Stephanie Maddalena. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned artist try one of the painting and drawing classes with Master artist Eleanor Miller.

RoCA is offering classes for young people including indoor classes in pottery, virtual classes in Anime/Manga, cartooning, YogArt and more! Try any of our new virtual classes.

Back by popular demand is the botanical watercolor painting, Chinese brush painting, abstract painting, or Anime/Manga for kids. New classes are being added weekly. Visit RoCA’s website for updates!
