FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(WEST PALM BEACH, FL) August 14, 2014: The Armory Art Center has classes scheduled starting September 2 in Lake Worth in its new expanded location – The Armory Lake Worth Annex. The year-long lease of the 5,000 square foot building at 1121 Lucerne Avenue, to locals known as the shuffleboard courts, was awarded to the Armory by the Lake Worth CRA. This award gives the Armory the opportunity to further enhance the thriving and dynamic Lake Worth art community.
The September session will included both one-time Art on the Go! workshops and eight-week classes. Armory instructors will teach classes in drawing, painting, mixed media and photography. Classes are offered for both youth and adults.
Liza Niles, Director of Education said “…originally the armory planned to have a total of 23 classes running six days a week…we have refined the schedule to start with 15 classes running 4 days a week to get established.” Niles said “going forward the armory goals for the annex are: to target local artist with teaching experience to be instructors, and to have offerings that will appeal to a diverse community”.
Exhibits are in the planning stages for the Annex. “The Lake Worth Annex allows us to complement our existing exhibition programming with more alternative, experimental and community-based exhibits and programs. We look forward to working very directly with the vibrant local and tri-county arts communities” said Hans Evers, Director of Exhibitions and External Programming.
