Get Creative at These Local Art Studios
Are you looking for something different to do? Then consider bringing out your inner Picasso during recreational art classes. Several schools near our Lake Carolyn apartments offer everything from to pencil drawing to glassblowing. Highlights include:
At Createria Studios, the belief is that the world is a happier place when people create art out of passion. Owner Kate Shema knew in elementary school that she wanted to be an artist. She taught crafts to preschool children as a teenager before studying art and graphic design at Kutztown University. Kate moved to Texas in 1987 and enjoys sharing her passion with others.
One of the recurring adult classes includes Hand-built Ceramics. No experience is necessary, and students learn to make decorative pieces along with various decorating techniques.
Creative Arts Center
With over 500 classes every year, the Creative Arts Center is one of North Texas' premier artistic destinations. Spanning two-acres, it's a gathering place for artists who come to share techniques and exchange ideas.
One of the most popular offerings includes Drawing Fundamentals. Perfect for beginners, this session includes learning the basic principles of drawing including light, line, and composition. The instructor covers both simple and complex subjects and offers individual attention.
Dallas Glass Art
After Carlyn Ray transformed a 1950s welding warehouse into a glassblowing studio, Dallas Glass Art was born. She offers weekend classes where students learn the history of art while gaining hands-on glassblowing experience. Carlyn and her team create chandeliers, wall decor, and fine art, and their pieces are found around town.
All skill levels are welcome and depending on the month, students may make objects such as vases, stemless wine glasses, or ornaments. Participants must wear cotton clothing and secure loose hair with a hat or headband.
Art classes are just one of the activities that residents of our apartments in Las Colinas can enjoy. If you're searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We'll arrange a tour where you can see firsthand all we have to offer.
