Studio Practice enables participants to learn the foundational skills, essential materials, tools, and most-commonly practiced techniques in the many fields associated with the Decorative Arts and Residential Interior Painting.

Through various weekly activities and projects, participants gain an enhanced awareness of the painting studio environment, and explore their creativity through skills such as glazing, gilding, faux finishing, large-scale painting, stamping, and so much more! Activities may also include guest speakers and job-readiness activities that further prepare participants for employment and self-employment in the Decorative Arts.

Studio Practice is held in person. Class size is limited and held in well ventilated classrooms due to COVID safety protocols.

Days: Mondays
Time: 11am – 2pm


Prior experience in the arts is not required. In order to be eligible to apply, you must:
