MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – The Middletown Art Center is offering “Community Works 2.0” July 26 through Aug. 6.

Get out of the heat and get cool and creative! Engage in artistic fun or perhaps process lingering trauma and fear during this fire season.

There are separate classes for adults and children, and classes for adults and children together.

Most classes are $5 to $10 per person on a sliding scale, with a few classes that require more materials and lengthier time costing $15. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

MAC encourages family members and favorite adults to accompany children and enjoy spending time together making art.

Classes in painting, collage/mixed media, and printmaking are offered this Wednesday, July 26, through Friday, July 28, and watercolors is offered Tuesday, Aug. 1. Each class is appropriate for both children and adults.

Sunday, July 30, is the tie dye playshop, which is appropriate for all ages. An adult or older sibling must accompany children under 10. They will be using fine dyes, and colors that can be mixed to achieve unique designs. The fee for this class is $15, or $10 if you bring your own t-shirt or other garment to tie dye.

Classes that are tailored for adults and teens include Sweat Your Prayers, dance on Friday evening, July 28; open session life drawing (no instructor), and assemblage or altered art – a collage of found objects, both offered on Saturday, July 29.

A second assemblage class geared to more sculptural pieces is offered Sunday, Aug. 6.

Participants are invited to bring their own meaningful objects, including remnants from the fire.

The fee for assemblage and life drawing is $15. Photographing Resilience is offered for $5, on Saturday, Aug. 5.
