Umbrella Offers Flexible Spring @Home, Hybrid Art Class Options
February 18, 2021 by Rachel Olson
The Umbrella Arts Center is now registering for its Spring 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 largely 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 March 1, offers courses in Drawing, Painting, Digital Animation, Photography, Fiber Arts, Nature Art, and Creative Mindfulness.
Options range from one-day Zoom workshops in subjects such as needlepoint felting to in-person outdoors woodland explorations to 6-week painting technique courses with noted nationally exhibited artists. Following a winter hiatus, The Umbrella also resumes its hybrid Ceramics @Home classes, including convenient curbside clay pickup and drop-off kiln firing services in its state-of-the-art new studios.
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.
