Get inspired this fall! The Ann Arbor Art Center’s Fall Workshops are an invitation to explore fresh artistic techniques and materials while fostering creativity and dynamic means of expression through art! Led by a multitalented roster of instructors who share their expertise with students in a fun, collaborative environment, we give students a chance to produce a plethora of works ranging from handcrafted ceramic pumpkins to spooky clay houses to ethereal silk scarves. Whether you register with friends, family, or are flying solo, our hands-on workshops are not only designed to teach you something new, but are also fashioned specifically to let the the seeds of creativity take root within yourself.
