Students Have Class at Orange

A recent exhibit at the Orange Art Center showed not only the high quality of work being created by adult students in our  bucolic setting, but also the range of media and materials they study and use. The 28th annual Adult Student Exhibition featured art made by students in drawing, oil painting, watercolor, ceramic, and more. The exhibit attracts prominent  artists of the region to serve as jurors—including 2012 juror Mallorie Freeman, a Cleveland based artist and preparator  of the Progressive Art Collection.

This summer offers another opportunity for students to hone their skills and look toward future shows. The OAC offers a  variety of classes and workshops for teens and adults, including a Plein Air Workshop taught by Dino Massaroni and Silk  Painting Workshops taught by Peggy Wertheim.

Back by popular demand are our weeklong summer camps structured towards ages 6–11 or 11–14. Summer Camp kids  have the opportunity to work in drawing and painting or pottery. Pottery classes include hand building or throwing clay on the wheel. Class size is limited, and our classes sold out last year, so we recommended that you register ASAP!

You do not need to be a member or resident of Orange to participate. However if you become a member of the OAC you
will receive early registration privileges and discounts on classes and workshops throughout the year. Please visit our  website,, for a complete list of classes, workshops, membership privileges or suggestions for classes  and workshops.
