There are a variety of reasons to take an art class or workshop, including:

  • Relaxation. Creating art or working with art materials is a stress reliever from your usual routine.
  • Learning something new. Engaging in art-making is a kinesthetic learning style. That means you won’t be bored!
  • Social benefits. Our program reaches out to a variety of people from all parts of campus and possibly from other parts of the world.
  • Boosting your self-esteem. You will amaze yourself and others by creating something from a ball of clay, a sheet of metal or a tray of paints.

To help you check off a few things from this list, Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Art Studios is now offering weekend workshops and mini courses.

Mini courses

“Copper Enameling Creations” and “Exploring Digital Photography” begin the week of Oct. 28 and meet once per week for four weeks. The digital photography class is open to any type of digital camera (yes, even cell phones!) and provides instruction in how to enhance your photos with user-friendly software.

Weekend workshops

Weekend workshops are available beginning Oct. 26 with a two-day workshop, “Just Earrings,” or a half-day workshop, “Secrets of Shibori, Designs on Silk.”

Imagine wearing the awesome cuff that you created in the weekend workshop “A Bracelet, A Cuff and A Bracelet” Nov. 9 and 10.

Descriptions are available on our website and you can register online.

Since 1975, Sarratt Art Studios has been offering noncredit studio art classes to the Vanderbilt and Nashville communities.  Located on the main floor of the Sarratt Student Center, adults of all ages and from all parts of the community enjoy exploring pottery, jewelry, digital photography, drawing, watercolor and fused glass.
