Introduction to Mosaics for Adults
Join renowned Charlotte artist Tom Thoune as he introduces the basics of one of his favorite art media, mosaics! Learn how to safely fashion these complex, textured surfaces in a variety of materials, including ceramic, glass, and found objects. Tom will introduce tips and techniques for building lush mosaic surfaces, and help you develop your own approach to color, composition, and image. This class will culminate in an evening around town, checking out some of Tom’s best-known Charlotte public art, in Southend and Plaza Midwood.

Open Studio for Adults
Our new Open Studio hours provide adult students extra time to work on projects started in one of our evening classes. This is a great way to extend your art-making time in a collaborative, creative environment, and further explore your own painting, drawing, collage, or printmaking process. This open studio time provides easily accessible materials, a creative studio space for inspiration, and a collaborative community of peers to discuss ideas. A studio monitor will be on hand to offer help and advice upon request, and to make sure everyone has all necessary materials.

Teen Art Studio
Our Teen Art Studio experience is the perfect opportunity for high school students to explore their interest in visual art by learning alongside a working professional artist. Each semester, one of CSA’s artist faculty will share their studio practice with teens, in these casual weekly afternoon sessions that combine learning new skills (in painting, drawing, fibers, mixed media, and sculpture) with informal discussions on contemporary art and design, and developing careers in the arts. Students will engage in a short series of self-guided portfolio projects and sketchbook exercises, and make occasional excursions beyond the studio to explore museums, parks, and other cultural attractions in Uptown Charlotte.
