Focused Education Courses

Throughout 2021, education at RAM had a John Bell, Jr. focus. From online RAM Sketch classes teaching about the use of perspective in art based on Bell’s works, a painting workshops by Marti Corff focused on Bell’s impressionistic paintings, and a Paint ‘n’ Sip class based off one of Bell’s peacock textile patterns RAM is using Bell’s artworks to teach and inspire. More classes and opportunities will be presented in 2022.
