The Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) presents its line-up of Summer classes, and we’ve got something for every age. Whether you want to try something new, classic, or rare, the CAC has options for you. Here are a few of the classes available for registration currently at Artsdouglas.org. Instructors are excited to begin teaching.
- Latisha Johnson begins a new course weekends in Summer where two students at a time will learn the cake-baking process. Learn to mix the fluffiest cake batter from scratch on Saturday, then gain tips to baking and decorating the whole way through with final touches by Sunday. It’s an art form you’ll treasure for the rest of your life.
- Marilyn Collins has moved to Georgia and her passion to teach is unpacked. This award-winning artist—and retired professor—offers a three-month course on oil painting that will meet Thursday mornings through the Summer. But don’t hesitate to jump on board this amazing opportunity for in-depth learning, because the registration deadline ends early June.
- Natisa Williams of Sew Fluent Academy brings two opportunities for a 2-week camp in sewing. Every week is a new project, and the value of learning the life skill can’t be beat. If you’re a working parent this Summer, allow Ms. Williams to enrich your child’s life with the confidence of making designs and patterns become reality!
- Robert Thompson brings one of the rarest workshops to the CAC, the workshop of paper-making. You will use natural fibers collected by Mr. Thompson himself in the process you’ll learn on the all-day experience on June 19.
- By popular demand, Stephen Armstrong returns for his course Photography 101. Bring your DSLR camera and take that thing off the automatic setting! You will learn how to use the features on your camera as well as learn about setting up a better framed view. This is a hands-on workshop that will take you on photo field trips around Douglasville the last two Tuesday evenings in June.
- Yvette Johns brings back two courses full of projects, you will be amazed at what you make with the age-old craft of knitting and crochet. She’s adjusted her hours to suit working schedules, 6-8 pm, so you can wind down on your weekday evenings in a chatty relaxing atmosphere while your hands stay busy with creation.
- Katherine Williams continues beginners’ piano lessons during the week, teaching the subject that is proven to enhance learning minds. Piano players make better school grades and test scores simply by enjoying making melodies with their hands.
- Joseph Falligan returns with a silly spin on his anatomy course. Cartoon Character Design will be a loose and fun approach to learning how to draw the body while designing characters. Bring your sketchbook and follow classroom exercises while working on personal projects. This is a six-week course that meets Saturday mornings starting in July.
