Registration is now open for an expanded array of afternoon, evening and weekend art workshops for adults and teens through Continuing Studies and Special Programs at Ringling College of Art and Design.

Enrollment is ongoing through April 5, but space is limited, and registration prior to January 12 ensures early registration savings.
Over 40 courses explore a variety of media, and offer something for the advanced studio artist looking for skill refinement, the novice seeking an introduction to the techniques of a specific discipline, and the professional wishing to acquire skills needed to thrive in the workplace. The program also offers practicing artists an opportunity to hone their skills under the guidance of RCAD faculty in state-of-the-art, professionally equipped facilities. Media includes painting, drawing, sculpture, fabric arts, photography, the digital arts, and more.
RCAD’s extensive course offerings meet the needs of a growing number of local professionals employed in creative fields, including designers, marketing professionals, art educators, interior designers, photographers, and healthcare professionals. Workshops for entrepreneurs and other business professionals include a full range of digital technology courses. Teachers may earn CEUs, and adults and teens are able to earn certificates in focused courses of study.
Spring Art Week, featuring intensive studio workshops with eleven notable visiting and emerging artists, runs March 2 through March 10. Faculty includes Charles Reid, internationally acclaimed watercolor artist, Glenn Vilppu, master figure draftsman in the Renaissance tradition, and award-winning layered media artist Lisa Pressman.
