Explore the Creative You in Visual Arts Classes at Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Art Studios
There are lots of reasons to take an art class: it’s a proven stress reliever, builds self-esteem, offers a break from your usual routine, and puts your hands on actual materials and away from the key boards.
Sarratt Art Studios offers non-credit art classes to adults at Vanderbilt University, the Vanderbilt Medical Center and from the Nashville area. Many of our classes are designed for beginners and we love when other experienced artists join us as well. Tuition prices are affordable compared to other art programs and classes meet once a week through the semester.
Maybe you received a new digital SLR camera recently? Then our Digital Photography class is just the class for you. We will teach you in six weeks how to use your camera with the manual settings plus a little on how to use software to edit those photos. Or maybe you want your hands on some earthy materials like clay! Join our Human Figure in Clay class to create original work while learning the qualities of clay and creating a figure. Are you thinking about how to design your own jewelry? We have several different classes that will teach you techniques to create your own jewelry. Perhaps you’d appreciate some time to sit and draw or paint for a couple of hours a week, try our Beginning/Intermediate Watercolor class or Drawing Fundamentals class
Our noncredit art classes for ages 18 and older begin the week of January 23, 2017.
