Looking for Some Artsy Fun?
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt
I got an email the other day from a high school student looking for art classes over the summer. She is just finishing up her summer “camp” program and wanted to know about art classes in our area. Knowing that many folks go on vacation and it is hard to commit to a regular class, I thought of some drop in classes in NYC and our own backyard of Westchester. If you don’t live near me, check your local craft stores for their art classes. Many of them offer classes for free in order to encourage you to buy supplies!
- Michael’s (in Hartsdale) Where ever you live there is probably one near you. I checked out at the Hartsdale schedule and they had classes in cake decorating, wire wrapping, crochet and scrap booking.
- JoAnn’s of Scarsdale. This fabric store is a big competitor of Michael’s so they also have a few cake decorating and jewelry classes but here you will find some fantastic sewing classes for all levels. A peak at their upcoming schedule I spotted a teen sewing class on Aug 11, 2013 and July 21, 2013 for $34 to make “Haute Headbands”
|The Ink Pad, NYC|
- The Ink Pad in NYC There’s a class every weekend with a different mixed media artist. Many of the artists who teach here are published in the craft magazines Stampington or Cloth, Paper Scissors

- Online Art Classes to do on your own. I teach online classes as do many other artists. Check out my classes for how to paint in watercolor with guest teachers in oil painting and mixed media!
