San Diego Art Department
The instructors at SDAD offer classes that delve deeper than the usual “how to,” such as Deron Cohen’s “Painting and the Creative Process,” which covers abstract painting, drawing, and oil painting; and Josie Rodriguez’s “Art of Encaustic Painting,” which incorporates techniques she gleaned from an intensive workshop in Italy. Though silk painting, acrylic, watercolor, and other painting-centric classes are offered, if you’re looking to stretch beyond the canvas, Art Department also offers wood-collage workshops, basket weaving, photography, and mosaics. Students are able to showcase their work in the gallery onsite.
