In addition to the regular studio art curriculum, the Department of Art hosts a number of special events with visiting artists, including a series of short, non-credit workshops in applied studio topics.
These small group workshops explore a range of subjects such as papermaking, calligraphy, monotype, storyboarding, woodworking, photo-documentation, and ceramic mosaics.
New Applied Art workshops and events are announced periodically throughout the academic year. The workshops provide all necessary materials, require no previous training in art, and are free. Space is limited, however, so you must sign up ahead of time. For details, see the Applied Arts web page.
Applied Arts workshops are open to the Wellesley College community. This includes current/former faculty, current/former staff, students, domestic partners of faculty/staff, and alumnae, but not children. Current Olin, MIT, and Babson students may also apply and will be included as space allows.
