The new season of Falls Church Arts classes begins tomorrow, Oct. 16, at 9:30 a.m. at ArtSpace Falls Church, located at 410 S. Maple Ave., Falls Church, with local artist/instructor Elizabeth Coberly Benfornado teaching a drawing class for those at a beginning to intermediate level. The class will be held each Thursday at 9:30 a.m. until Nov. 30.
As part of Falls Church Arts’ 2014 theme of “pARTicipate,” the organization is offering a more expanded education program with excellent artist/instructors who are very experience and accomplished in their fields. The Falls Church Arts “pARTicipate” program is to encourage those who might otherwise be uncomfortable in trying their creative skills to experience an intimate and supportive atmosphere.
Falls Church Arts provides small classes with personal attention on each student’s particular needs and skill levels at local venues with fine artist/instructors. Other classes starting up this month include Creative Arts in the New Media, Beginning Watercolor, Oil Painting, Assemblage Art and Pastels.
Falls Church Arts is also calling for artists for its new show FACES, which will be curated by Falls Church Artist Bill Abel. FACES will be a show focusing on faces of all sorts as the main theme of each piece of art. All mediums are accepted and the deadline for electronic entry is this Saturday, Oct. 18, at 9 p.m. For the catalog of new Falls Church Arts classes and shows for their 2014 – 2015 season and entry forms for FACES, visit fallschurcharts.org.
