An array of new classes and old favorites can be found this Spring at The Center for Continuing Education in Mamaroneck. Lectures on art appreciation with privately-escorted museum tours, classes to explore your inner artist, courses to hone digital skills and The Center’s ever-popular day trips are among the offerings
New to The Center is Page Knox, a lecturer at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, who will provide previews to two new exhibits at the Met this spring: Artistic Encounters with Indigenous America; and Between Parthia and Rome: Art and Identity in The Near East. She’ll then lead students on private tours to the exhibits at the Met.
For a different type of art experience, The Center is also offering a Bushwick Art Excursion: An Art Scene Grows in Brooklyn with Ronnit Vasserman.
The Center has a number of new art classes with new instructors including “Introduction to Oil Painting, Painting Faces” and “Drawing In Spring.” For those interested in the digital medium, The Center is offering “Develop Your Brand With Graphic Designs.” Professional graphic designer Laura Saravia Bolt will show students how to create graphics and content to market their brands.
In terms of the culinary arts, Aditi Goswami, the owner of Calcutta Kitchens will be teaching two classes Comfort Curries and Indian Vegan/Vegetarian.
The Center’s mission is to offer classes for learners of all ages. Classes for high school students include a Regents Review Prep and Biology and Math SAT II Prep. Scholarships are available.
