Artists showing entrepreneurial spirit with class offerings
In these tough times what’s an artist to do but invent?
Lee Swallie, (see his drawing above) a recent University of South Carolina grad, is opening a small art school in Lexington. "Artists at Work Studios," as the name implies also has studio - seven and they're already full. It also has a small exhibition space. Artists at Work Studios starts offering art classes later this month.
Six-session classes are $165 to $185; a four session etching course is $135 including materials; and you can set up custom classes.Classes start July 24. Go to http://www.lexartclass.com/
Another recent USC graduate, Amanda Ladymon is starting classes at 701 Center for Contemporary Art in mixed media drawing, recycled material sculpture, altered books and various other things (for adults and kids) running $110 to $125 and meeting three days.
