January 11, 2015

The Art Institutes system of schools is expanding its GETCreative courses to a third location, The Art Institute of Washington, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta, in January. The courses invite teens and adults to take their creative talents to the next level through workshops and special events. Participants may choose from a variety of courses designed for the pursuit of casual recreational learning or professional development designed for adults in creative careers.  The classes take place in The Art Institute of Washington’s professional kitchens, studios, and labs—providing hands-on training on industry standard tools and technology.

Creative writing workshops, an introduction to digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) photography, accessory design, comic book art drawing, website design, and a day in the sushi kitchen are examples of the creative outlets “GETCreative” provides. Classes begin in January and are offered in the following areas: Photography; Creative Writing; Culinary Arts; Art Foundations; Textiles, Fashion and Accessories; Software for Designers; and The Business of Art. Classes meet for as few as one—or as many as six—sessions.

“GETCreative is a great opportunity for members of the community to expand their creativity, learn a new skill or pursue a passion, all with the guidance of industry professionals. Students can also use these classes as a way to see if a creative career path is right for them,” said Jim Palermo, President of The Art Institute of Washington.
