Summer 2017
June 12 – August 5

Fall I 2017

August 28 – October 21

Fall II 2017

October 30 – December 23

During the fall 2015 season, Crealdé School of Art launched a new and expanded Fiber Arts program. This is in response to national trends and a dramatically increased interest in this medium in Central Florida.

Through a special gift by a Crealdé member, Crealdé also came into possession of a brand-new, state-of-the-art longarm quilting machine, which was installed at our Hannibal Square Heritage Center. Our Fiber Arts offerings have been augmented by a series of classes and workshops that will teach students traditional and contemporary methods of quilting, including patchwork, applique and working with the longarm machine. These new programs are in addition to our popular classes in fabric collage and related courses in bookmaking and papermaking.
