UPCOMING 30th ANNIVERSARY SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

We are delighted to celebrate our 30th year of transforming individuals and communities through the visual arts.

Since our founding in 1987, VisArts has grown from a small grass-roots organization located in a converted garage to a hub for the visual arts in a beautiful 25,000-square-foot facility in the heart of Rockville Town Square. Over the years, more than 600,000 individuals have enjoyed innovative experiences that cultivate creativity, problem solving, and appreciation for the arts.

August 18 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm | $30

Celebrate VisArts’ 30th Anniversary with this Try the Wheel class discounted at $30 for 30 years!

We provide one and a half pounds of clay per student and all other necessary materials, and the instructor walks you through step by step on how to make a wheel thrown piece. It’s a perfect chance to learn the basics of wheel throwing while enjoying the company of friends and other creative folks. This class is especially designed for those who have never used the wheel or who are working on basic skills. Each student will create a cup, bowl, or vase, and will choose a glaze from our studio options. Additional clay may be purchased, if you would like to make another piece during your 2-hour class. You will need to return after two weeks to pick up your finished piece and we discard finished products after 12 weeks. REGISTER HERE
