BEDMINSTER, N.J. - JerseyDesk -- The Center for Contemporary Art is excited to announce its winter schedule of art classes and workshops which begins January 7th and runs through March.

Classes are offered for artists with all levels of expertise in a variety of media including oil and acrylic paint, pastel, watercolor, drawing, and ceramics.

New classes this winter include "iPad Drawing," "Relief Printing," and "Abstract Expression."  In "iPad Drawing" with Jeremie Duval, students will learn the many techniques of creating contemporary digital works of art on an iPad. This course is available in both beginner and advanced levels. "Relief Printing"
with Michael McFadden will allow students to explore the different processes of printmaking. Each class will focus on a different process such as rubbings, mono-prints, rubber stamps, and linoleum blocks. "Abstract Expression" with Nancy Shill will allow students to be playful and nonjudgmental while finding their unique expression. A variety of media will be used, such as acrylic paint and collage, to convey emotions through nonrepresentational means. Winter art workshops provide special one-day opportunities for local artists and include "Watercolor Pouring," "Using Negative Space in Watercolor," "Animal Portraiture," and "Pysanky – Polish Egg Painting."

The Center's unique curriculum of children's art classes allows young artists to enroll in either overview classes that explore a broad range of media and techniques, or in-depth classes designed to deepen and develop skills in a single medium. New classes for teens offered this semester include "Scientific Exploration in Art" and "Drawing from a Model." In "Scientific Exploration in Art" with Joseph Castronova students will investigate the intersection of science and art. Watercolor, ink, charcoal, collage and other techniques will be used to build on observations from the world around us. Teens can explore the craft of representational figure drawing in "Drawing from a Model" with Pauline Vargas. Using vine charcoal and charcoal pencils, students will learn how to capture likeness, proportion and gesture.

Classes are offered Monday evenings for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other special needs beginning January 27th.  Students will explore a variety of art projects specifically geared to their interest and ability both in two-and-three dimensional approaches.
