August Adult Art Class Series

Want a creative end to your work day? Come to WMA after hours to immerse yourself in wonderful art! A three-class series will be held once a quarter (February, May, August, November) on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursdays of the month. Each month’s series will focus on an artist through the in-depth study of a piece by that artist on display at WMA. Once familiar with the individual work, students will learn how to create their own unique work of art in the same medium.

During August’s class series, students will learn about Kevin Irwin’s ceramic sculpture, Wiregrass Dragon, found in WMA’s Entrance Galleries. After a discussion in front of the work, the class will head to the studio and learn hand-building techniques for the creation of their own work of art. Instruction will be geared towards creating a functional work of art with an animal theme. Glazing and decorating techniques will be explored, and finished pieces will be available for pick up two weeks after the series is completed.

Classes will be held in WMA’s studio on August 8th, 15th, and 22nd from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

This series is for students ages 18+.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Throughout the year, WMA will host “Meet the Educator” days where parents and their children can come to the classroom to meet the instructor before beginning classes and camps. 2019’s schedule is as follows: January 30 from 4pm-6pm, May 29 from 4pm-6pm, and August 28 from 4pm-6pm.

Refund Policy

The Wiregrass Museum of Art may cancel any class with insufficient enrollment; students will be notified and given a full refund. If a student withdraws at least 1 week before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for the full cost of the class. If a student withdraws 24 hours before the class begins, he/she will be refunded for half the cost of the class. There are no refunds after the start date of class, and membership fees are nonrefundable. Students are not enrolled until complete payment is received.
