EDMOND — Enrollment for fall classes at the Edmond Fine Arts Institute is underway. The classes for adults and children start Wednesday.
The institute represents 25 teachers whose education comes from the art departments of Oklahoma universities and other renowned schools across the country. Several teachers have been trained internationally.
“We are very proud of our faculty,” said Shannon Price, executive director. “In addition to their appropriate education in the arts, they all have the ability to motivate, encourage and interact in a helpful way with their students.
“They represent the best in art instruction. Whether a student is 3 years old or 93, the Fine Arts Institute has a trained instructor to teach visual and performing art.”
Several new teachers have been added to the faculty this fall. Behnaz Sohrabian, born in Tehran, Iran, will teach drawing exercises in a class designed for adult students desiring to learn the fundamentals of drawing from still-life and live models.
Jon Martindale will share his expertise in oil painting on Thursday evenings and stone carving on Tuesdays.
Returning teachers include Bert Seaborn, an award-winning artist with award-winning students. He will be working with adults in acrylic painting workshops and acrylic mixed-media workshops on Wednesdays.
