Looking for art classes? We’ve got you covered!
CFU offers a great selection of art and crafts classes, most of which are perfect for the beginner because you don’t have to invest in a huge amount of equipment or materials to try out a new medium
We’ve always offered an array of great basic drawing and painting classes.
Anybody can learn to draw–really–it just takes some practice and skills which you can easily pick up and practice in Basic Drawing. Another good drawing class is Basic Sketching where you learn to quickly capture the essence of a figure or object.
In painting, we offer watercolor painting, acrylic painting, and oil painting with the Bob Ross method. You’ll walk out of these classes with some great work. Impressions of the Gardens is a really great way to actually walk outside and draw and paint in the Denver Botanic Gardens.
We have alternative technique painting classes too, such as collage
paintings and watercolor batik painting. Both of these classes combine two fun techniques to make something entirely new. Best yet, the classes offer techniques that anyone can master and produced lovely results. Similarly, try Zentangle or Chinese calligrapy and learn a fun drawing techniques that can be therapeutic and meditative.
Moving into the 3rd dimension, we offer pottery classes, including throwing on the wheel, woodworking for beginner (make a bookcase or table), and glass workshops in fusing and glass blowing. If you’re interested in sculpture, try the Some Like It Hot class and work on creating a wall piece out of sheet metal.
Everybody knows that crafts are enjoying a renaissance. Crafts like knitting, crochet and beginning sewing are popular. We also have classes where you can embellish clothing in various ways with applique or with nuno felting to create unique, wearable art.
