Workshops

 

Each year the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs offers a variety of workshops taught by nationally, and internationally recognized master artists, in watercolor, pastel, acrylic, oil, mixed media and more. Study Painterly Portraits & Figures with William Schneider, Improving Your Skills on the Potters Wheel with Peter Jones, or learning how to take risks with your art in Diane Pike's workshop Painting the Landscape Inside Out.

Due to the caliber of our professional instructors, students from across the state and the country register in advance for our workshops. Space is limited and workshops sell out fast. Please make sure to review the Workshop Policies, including the Refund Policy, at the bottom of this page.
