The Wallkill River School of Art has a plethora of classes for moms who have been drawing and painting for years and even for those looking to dip their paint brush in for the very first time. Gallery Director Liam Vogel says, "The school has classes that are very specific and technique-based for those who are more advanced. We also have beginner classes that are good if the student is looking to find a medium they would like to use and perfect their skills with it." Adult classes are ongoing, according to Vogel. He says, "Classes usually run for four weeks. You would sign up and come every Saturday for four weeks to learn fine art." Drawing and painting in a variety of mediums is the gallery's specialty. "Our focus is plein air paintings (landscapes) and fine art so we don't really have classes that teach sculpture or photography," explains Vogel. Want to spend your "Me Time" with your kids? Nicole Asendorf, art instructor at The Wallkill River School of Art, teaches seasonal classes for parents and children to take together. "Last month Nicole's classes painted snowmen, and for Valentine's Day she is doing another themed painting lesson," says Vogel. These classes are one day sessions.
