Carriage House Studios, at 51 York St., will be starting up specialized art classes as soon as next month.
Though Carriage House was established by four local artists as a working studio, Stratford Festival artist-instructed classes have been added.
"Students willing to invest in the development of their creativity will share in a special opportunity to work with a world-class artist in their field," states a Carriage House press release.
October's classes include an Introduction to Painting Techniques on Fabric, with the Festival's Lisa Hughes, and Theatrical Mask Making, with master prop builder Ken Dubblestyne.
In November, Carving for Stage, Film, Display, Garden or Foundry will be hosted by Glenn Elliot and Making Jewelry for the Theatre, with Renata Zagorska, a Festival jewelry maker and co-founder of Carriage House Studios.
In January, Marion Isherwood - who also calls Carriage House Studios her artistic home - will hold a Working with Watercolour and Pastel course.
Most classes are between three and five days in length, with varied costs. A deposit is required upon registration. Space is limited, as classes will be kept small and intimate.
For more information or to register, call Susan Starkweather at 275-2554 or Brenda McDonnell at 271-3613.
