  For 30 years the Lakewood Arts Gallery has been a place to not only view artwork from local Colorado artists, but a place to immerse yourself in a creative community that offers fun events such as soup tastings and Valentine teas, musical, literary and performance arts and a chance to further your education with an interesting array of class offerings.

The gallery’s winter schedule of classes will include oil painting with Lakewood Arts founder Barb Tobiska; Saturday evening Sip & Pour acrylic workshops; painting underwater scenes on YUPO; learning about copyright law for artists; and even a Yog(a)rt workshop where a vinyasa flow and meditation session is followed by the creation of your own personal mandala.

Mosaics, “Drink-n-Ink”, encaustic wax collage and even a mixed-media floral workshop to usher in spring will allow students to fulfill that New Year’s resolution to try something new.

All these classes and workshops can be found on the gallery’s website.

Call Lakewood Arts Gallery at 303-980-0625 or go to lakewoodarts.org to learn more.
