MELBOURNE, FLA. — Online registration is now underway for winter art classes and workshops at Florida Institute of Technology’s Renee Foosaner Education Center in the Eau Gallie Arts District of Melbourne.

Workshops include “Bill van Gilder: The Functional Pot: Tips, Tools and Techniques Workshop” Feb. 3-5 and a two-day oil-painting workshop with visiting artist Douglas David called “Paint Dynamic and Exciting Oils with Ease” on March 4-5.
A variety of classes are available for adults and children, including a figure drawing class for kids, beginning, intermediate and advanced pottery for adults, figure sculpture, intermediate watercolor, beginning photography (digital) with Jennifer Glass, and mixed media painting.
