More Spring Classes at the MAC

A new eight-week session of Continuing-Advanced Watercolor Painting for Adults will run March 18-May 6 with Instructor Jay Ryan on Friday mornings from 10:00am-12:00pm in the MAC Studio. There is a drop-in option ($30 per day) for students who can’t commit to the entire session. The cost is $195 for MAC members and $220 for nonmembers for the full eight-week course. Register at Description This course is great for those with a little painting experience and is also a perfect “next step” for those who would like to explore watercolor painting beyond a basic understanding of color and brush strokes. Using the brilliant nature of light (and dark,) we’ll “push” the medium, adding other water media, brushes, and paper surfaces and experiment with palette color mixing to capture magic and luminosity. In each class, we will start a new painting together using landscape, still life, the figure, abstract or imaginative thought or narrative ideas as subjects. Each class will also provide a brief and supportive group “critique.” Students will leave with expanded knowledge of technique and traditional and contemporary use of watercolor.

            The spring session of MAC Dance Academy begins on March 7 and runs for ten sessions on Monday afternoons through May 16, with no classes during April school vacation week. Instructor Erin Murphy hosts classes for preschool, beginner, intermediate and preteen, each meeting for half an hour each, 4:00-6:00pm in the MAC’s upstairs gallery. MAC Dance Academy is a low-key, low-cost dance program geared toward girls and boys ages 3-12. The cost for the ten-week session is $175 for MAC members and $195 for nonmembers.
