Sewickley Herald: Sweetwater Center for the Arts looks forward to 2024 Master Class series

Entrance to Sweetwater Center for the Arts

Sewickley’s Sweetwater Center for the Arts is bringing in a slate of renowned artists as instructors for its 2024 Master Classes. The series of five three-day workshops will take place between April and October of 2024.

“Our big goal with the Master Classes is to offer something here at the Center that you maybe wouldn’t be able to get otherwise,” said Liana Agnew, exhibition and events manager for Sweetwater Center for the Arts.

Each workshop offers an opportunity for passionate artists to take intensive classes with a small group. The format allows for more one-on-one time with the expert instructors.

“Class sizes will cap at 16, so it’ll be a nice group but not too overbearing and very personal,” Agnew said.

The five visiting Master Class leaders work in a variety of artistic forms, and each workshop will be different. According to Agnew, Sweetwater worked to find artists who had teaching or instructional experience so that attendees can get the most out of their experience.

Jennifer Allen will be kicking off the 2024 series from April 26-28. Her ceramics class, “From Slab to Fab,” will concentrate on creating repeatable forms in slab built pottery with paper patterns.
