McLean Project for the Arts Opens Fall Class Registration

Registration opened last week for fall classes at the McLean Project for the Arts (MPA), a non-profit visual arts center founded in 1962 to exhibit the work of emerging and established regional artists.

This fall the MPA is offering twelve different art classes for adults; new classes include Abstract Drawing with Mixed Media, Experimenting with Ink on Paper, Drawing and Painting: The Figure and, for children, Animal Drawing and Painting. The MPA is also offering I’ve Never Held a Pencil: Drawing for Beginners, its very popular adult class for true beginners.

The MPA offers a wide variety of professionally taught art classes for adults, teens and children including family art workshops, artist talks and workshops, and tours to area museums and galleries. Classes and workshops are held in the Susan B. DuVal Studio in the McLean Community Center, which is located at 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean. For class information and to registration visit
