We continue to offer free multi-generational classes and workshops at the Family & Youth Center art room. The center is located next to Questa Public Library, at 10 Municipal Park Drive.
These spring from the initial Friday afternoon Art for Everyone Clay Workshops that co-founder of the QCC Peggy Trigg initiated in collaboration with the Questa library.
They are of a variety of formats and durations. We always are interested in hosting more of these with local artists guiding them, according to their passions! Contact us if you’d like to lead one.
Currently, in the fall of 2023, we are offering “Ceramic Café,” a free drop-in class for anyone interested in playing with clay, on Thursdays from 5 to 9 pm. (see its own project page for more info)
In 2022, three artists led classes or workshops.
Beginning in April, Nick Nagawiecki led a beginning weaving class. It was so popular he continued to offer these Sunday workshops into June and July.
In May, poet Betsy Irwin led her “Pandemic Poetry” class, in sessions for both youth and adults, for two Saturdays.
Art educator Mark Lewis Wagner led his Creative Journeys acrylic painting workshop for two weekends in August.
Although the workshops and classes are free of charge, any donations to cover supplies (or to tip your teacher!) is appreciated.
Please note: children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
We are hoping to host workshops in after-school sessions for local youth very soon, in collaboration with funders and the Questa schools.
