New Year's Resolution: Take an Art Class at Mystic Museum of Art

Mystic, CT – The Mystic Museum of Art (MMoA) is offering the opportunity to learn something new this year during their newest winter session of studio art programs. Art classes for adults and teenagers are offered from January through May 2017, at their 9 Water Street building.  Registration is open to the public with substantial discounts for members of MMoA. To allow for flexibility, classes are held both as month-long series and as one-day workshops. 

From the basics, like Intro to Drawing, to more progressive classes, like Speed Painting, classes appeal to a variety of experience levels and interests. Students can develop their ability to draw realistically, explore anatomy using plaster casts, or build upon their knowledge of color theory. Classes at MMoA typically include a mix of demonstrations and personal instruction.  

Students can explore the potential of the 2-dimensional format or learn to oil paint in the long-practiced traditions of the great masters such as Rembrandt and DaVinci with MMoA guest faculty, Sam Morrow. Morrow’s 2-D Design class runs from February 21 to March 21 and Techniques of the Old Masters class runs from March 30 to April 27. 

The curriculum is not limited to traditional art forms, but also explores new methods such as Zentangle, where pen and paper are used to create beautiful graphic designs. Carol Dunn is MMoA’s certified Zentangle instructor, offering Zentangle: Black & White Stained Glass Zendalas on January 25th from 6 – 9 pm and Zentangle: Renaissance Blues on Wednesday, March 15, 6pm – 9pm. 

Classes can also be a thoughtful gift. Gift certificates of any amount are available for purchase and may be used towards any class on the MMoA schedule. Discounts are available for those who register in advance, refer a friend or sign up for two classes during the same session.  Please visit for more information on classes and promotions.
