Gaslight Art Colony is dedicated to broadening an appreciation of the Arts by providing opportunities that promote awareness, participation and understanding through fine arts exhibitions, classes and workshops.

Ceramics Class Sessions

Gaslight Art Colony is offering Ceramics Class Sessions every Thursday in May to students with previous instruction experience. These creative sessions will allow students to practice and create a project of their choice. Students who attended even one class in the past should feel free to come to the Colony any Thursday in May from 6-8 p.m. to work on a ceramics project. Instructor, Jack Davidson, will be on hand to supervise and assist. The cost is $20 per hour that includes instruction and the materials. Private instructions are also available upon request. Feel free to contact the colony 217- 293-1050 to inquire about private lessons.
