The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is dedicated to bringing arts education to Fort Myers! As part of this initiative, SBDAC is offering many opportunities for students of all ages to participate in music, art, and writing classes. Check out all the options below!
The Davis School of Music
SBDAC has its own school of music! The Davis School offers lessons in violin, piano, harp, voice, and DJing. Most courses are offered as group or individual instruction. Plus, students can decide to take one classes or sign up for multiple lessons. The Davis School is perfect for students of all ages! In fact, many teens love the DJ class instructed by DJ Tommy Giaime of Sol Productions. Find out how to register for the Davis School here!
In addition to music instruction, each season SBDAC offers art workshops! In 2018 and 2019, the workshops will focus on showing your work and fiber art. The first workshop of the season is Artist Workshop 101: Showing Your Work on November 17th. This free course offers an in-depth look at presenting your work to a gallery for exhibition. Then in December and January, there are two opportunities to take part in fiber art workshops. The fiber art workshops are for students of all levels. All of these arts education workshops are now open for registration!
Every season, SBDAC hosts the Famous Author Lecture Series. This season, SBDAC will host two writing workshops offered by writers from the Famous Author Lecture Series. In January, take part in a writing workshop from Neely Tucker, “Building a Narrative: The (Invisible) Ties that Bind.” Tucker’s workshop will focus on building narrative arcs, and is perfect for writers currently working on or beginning a new fiction or nonfiction project. Then in April, join the writing workshop with Susanna Daniel, “Great Beginnings.” Daniel’s workshop will break down what makes a great intro, exploring tone, setting, point of view, and imagery. Don’t miss these arts education opportunities with famous authors!
