Berkeley Arts Council Community Arts Instruction
Fostering arts in community since 2009, the Berkeley Arts Council offers an exciting line-up of creative instruction for Autumn.
MARTINSBURG, September 2023—The Berkeley Arts Council announces a fresh lineup of arts classes for Autumn. One day workshops through long-form (4 week) courses bring a variety of techniques and instructors to the teaching studio in downtown Martinsburg, WV.
Learn new skills or push your boundaries in traditional media, or explore the unique worlds of needle felting, gold leaf illumination, and cold wax. Take your paints to the park with Plein Air (outdoors) painting. Bring a professional polish to your arts practice by creating the all-important Artist Bio and Artist Statement.
In addition to instruction, the Berkeley Arts Council offers a wide range of exciting opportunities. Members are encouraged to show artwork in the Members’ and Juried exhibits, or participate in the Artist Co-op (rolling applications.) Build friendships, volunteer your strengths and learn new skills as we Amplify the Arts!
