Artists Association of Nantucket Announces
Try It Out Tuesdays
AAN is hosting “Try It Out Tuesdays” Workshops
at the Visual Arts Center, 24 Amelia Drive.
Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is pleased to announce a new series of evening classes
called “Try It Out Tuesdays.” These evenings are single mini-workshops that invite
Nantucketers to come to AAN’s Visual Arts Center on 24 Amelia Drive and sample various
“Having an opportunity to see whether you enjoy working in an unknown medium, like clay or
printmaking, is important,” says Elizabeth Congdon, Director of Adult Programming, “And
how will you know if you don’t give it a chance?”
Congdon and her team have crafted a line up of classes for drawing, painting, printmaking,
collaging, and ceramics to make Tuesday evenings entertaining. Liz Buccino, Director of Youth
Programming, is teaching two handbuilding ceramics classes. “When people think of clay, they
mostly assume it’s about wheel throwing. But there are all sorts of amazing ways you can work
with clay beyond pottery, that are really satisfying and fun, whether you’ve worked extensively
with clay, or not at all,” she says.
AAN hopes islanders will make Try-It-Out Tuesdays part of their fall routine. “Taking art
classes is a wonderful way to relax, make new friends, build some skills, and exercise that part of
your brain that might not get used during your typical day,” Congdon believes, “But sometimes
we don’t know what a class will really be like, and if it’s worth the investment of our time and
money.” These single Tuesday evenings will take place from 6:30pm to 8:30pm, and the tuition
of $60 will include all materials.
