Published: Jan 23, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 23, 2013) — The time has arrived again for the University of Kentucky's Fine Arts Institute to provide an assortment of classes and workshops for adults in the community who wish to further their creative skills. Designed to fit into the working schedules of most adults, these noncredit courses range from metal working to digital photography.

 

Offered three times a year, the institute's programs are geared toward beginners and advanced artists. This spring, 11 courses are being offered: eight classes and three workshops. Classes meet once or twice every week, and workshops are a one-day event. Locations for the programs include the Lucille C. Little Fine Arts Library Computer Lab, Reynolds Building, Fine Arts Building or the Bread Box Artists' Studios and are dependent upon course subjects.

 

The institute's spring 2013 classes are:

· "Beginning Photoshop" with Lennon Michalski, 6-9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning Feb. 4;

· "Beginning to Draw" with Christine Kuhn, 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Feb. 5;

· "Ceramics" with Jill Stofer, 6-9 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Feb. 5;

· "P.E.M.A. Painting" with Kuhn, 6-9 p.m. Wednesdays, beginning Feb. 6;

· "Beginning Metal Working" with Jeremy Colbert, 6-9 p.m. Thursdays, beginning Feb. 7;

· "Beginning to Paint" with Kuhn, 6-9 p.m. Thursdays, beginning Feb. 7; and

· "Advanced Photoshop and Adobe Programs" with Michalski, 6-9 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning April 8.

 

This spring's "Woodworking" class with Lynn Sweet is already full and will be offered again in fall of 2013.

 

For those interested in a one-day or three-day course, the spring 2013 workshops are:

· "Living a Layered Life: Felting and Shibori Dyeing Workshops" with Laverne Zabielski, presented Feb. 5, Feb. 12 and Feb. 19;
