The Umbrella @ Home Offers Flexible Online Art Class Options
January 4, 2021 by Rachel Olson
The Umbrella Arts Center is now registering for its Winter 2021 session of virtual and hybrid arts classes and workshops for all ages and in a variety of media.
Although The Umbrella's classrooms at 40 Stow Street remain closed for in-person arts instruction due to the pandemic, it has spent most of this year innovating The Umbrella @Home programming, with virtual arts instruction delivered through multiple distance-learning methods and platforms.
The newest session, with classes beginning as early as January 5, offers courses in Drawing, Painting, Digital Arts, Fiber Arts, Nature Journaling, and Creative Mindfulness.
Options range from one-day beginner workshops in subjects such as needlepoint felting and fabric basketweaving to 3-week asynchronous digital animation lessons to 6-week advanced oil and acrylic painting courses with regular critique groups.
To inspire its community to remain creative through the pandemic, The Umbrella is also inviting all class participants, teachers and community artists share their favorite creations in its online #DiscoverYourArts Showcase, expanding this summer's virtual exhibition featuring student work and art shared through challenges by community artists.
