Rochester, Mich., – Take a creative approach to your New Year’s Resolution and discover your inner artist with the help of The Art School at Paint Creek Center for the Arts (PCCA). PCCA is excited to offer over 40 studio art classes to choose from for all skill levels. These classes will inspire children and adults alike while exploring painting, watercolor, fiber, clay, sculpture, mixed media and more. Classes start the week of January 17, 2011.

PCCA works with over 15 talented faculty members to create a unique curriculum ideal for any skill level or artistic interest. Many PCCA faculty members hold advanced degrees in fine art, art education and more from institutions such as Wayne State University, College for Creative Studies and Oakland University. “Our faculty work with students on an individual basis to encourage growth and strengthen artistic talents” says Art School Manager, Lauren Ruddy.

Register for a class and learn from the artistic faculty as you explore watercolor, have fun with Photoshop, or enjoy time with friends in the popular Girls’ Night Art. PCCA’s Art School also offers kids as young as six the opportunity to get inspired as they create wonderful works in clay, drawing, painting and much more.
