Trestle’s community classes program called Trestle Workshops offers instruction in a wide variety of artist techniques and theories, as well as training in professional practices. This program serves a dual purpose of educating artists in new media and creating jobs for highly-trained teaching artists. The classes attract a wide range of artists from the neighborhood and help Trestle participate in the life of the local community while providing professional-level artistic instruction to a wide audience.
Trestle Workshops is located in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn on the fourth floor above the Bed Bath & Beyond Shopping Complex. Please come to the 350 Third Avenue entrance between 30th and 31st street and come to suite 411.
Class space was too small for the number of people showed up. And in fact 2 others were supposed to be there too. As a result, it was hard to get table space for the final much anticipated printing on the cloth step. (I had smudges from others' on my work.) Instructor himself was very helpful and nice in general.
This class is a great exploration into various acrylic mediums. The instructor is well prepared and encouraging.
The class was fun, very informative and the instructor made it really easy to follow along and understand the process.
Excellent class. Nathan the instructor was prompt and came fully prepared with materials and visual examples. He is knowledgeable and obviously experienced at conveying information clearly and in different ways. He addressed safety issues as well as encouraging individual aesthetic expression. Nathan was there to coach each of us as we reached the next step of the process, i.e., putting a design on the block, cutting, inking and printing. The 3-hour course was just the right amount of time to produce one piece, soup to nuts. Three students was a great class size. The classroom was fine -- well-lit, and wi-fi'd.
This was the first drawing class I've ever taken and it was wonderful. The instructor was so patient and gave a perfect overview to begin with. Then, in each class she did demos and gave personal suggestions to each student as needed. She didn't overly engage, allowing students to work at their own pace, but stepped in when we were "stuck." Each class had a topic which we focused on, giving us something to work on. I expected to be very intimidated, but wasn't at all. I would take this course again!
Terrific class. Felt like I learned something new that I would do again. Nathan was a patient instructor.
I feel like a DIY silkscreen expert now!
it was a fun informative class, the only thing i wish were different is the location. it was such a long train ride home afterwards!
Definitely learned some great tips and tricks for DIY printing. The class overall just seemed to be pricy. $85 for the class +$40 material fee.
This class was a great introduction to encaustic paintings for someone who knows very little about the topic. The class is spit into instructional and hands on portions (the whole evening went by quickly!). Participants leave with one or two panels, depending on how much time you want to spend exploring different methods. The instructor was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I would recommend this class to anyone.
