Armory To Offer Equine Art In Wellington

The Armory Art Center and #1 Education Place have announced the next series of classes in their collaborative partnership bringing art enrichment programs to the western communities.

For the winter series, the youth programs in Wellington will focus on equine art. “Horsing Around With Art” is a four-week course in which students will express their love of horses in two and three dimensions by studying the proportions and gait of their favorite pony, stallion or steed. Knowledge of these important drawing basics will be built upon throughout the classes. These skills will enable the avid rider, polo player or horse enthusiast to more accurately depict horses in various ranges of motion and in portraiture.

Classes will begin on Monday, Jan. 4 and run through Jan. 25. Elementary students will meet from 2:45 to 4:15 p.m. and middle school/high school students will meet from 4:15 to 6:15 p.m. Both classes will be taught by Armory Art Center instructor Margaret Jahn. #1 Education Place is located in the original Wellington Mall at 12794 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 23, in Wellington. For more information, or to register, contact the Armory Art Center at (561) 832-1776 or #1 Education Place at (561) 753-6563.
