Recession Special: Update

Having fun for one low, low price!

Learn how to make your own jewelry at Pratt Fine Arts Center.

Not much time left to sign up for the Fall Arts classes at Pratt, where you can learn how to weld on a Wednesday night for less than it costs to have dinner for two at Dahlia Lounge. Not that we don’t like Dahlia Lounge, Mr. Douglas. Sir.

If the lure of welding isn’t going to get you out of the house, will blacksmithing? Or how about any of the other 20+ classes offered, ranging from screenprinting and life drawing to "flameworking" glass holiday ornaments? Sessions are short and sweet (four hours max), cost $50 on average, and run weeknights and weekends from November 15-25. They fill up quickly with beginners and experienced artists alike, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that there are a few slots left open for us. And you, of course. We’re all friends here.

UPDATE: If you’d prefer to know what you’re getting into before signing up, Pratt Fine Arts Center will host an Open House on Saturday, November 14, from 6-9pm. It’s your chance to watch artists at work — pouring, melting, painting, carving — and ask questions about classes. Plus, there are activities for children AND a cash bar. Separate. Don’t worry.
