Winter and Spring Art Classes Now Registering at the Dunedin Fine Art Center

Remember sledding down that snowy hill? How about the earliest memory you have of the creative freedom of art? Perhaps it’s the smell of a new box of crayons as you first opened them, or the tremendous feeling of the clay squishing between your fingers as you squeezed it. A blank sheet of paper, a ball of clay and a world of possibilities. Those possibilities of course are still there inside of you.

Blue & Yellow Don’t Make Green & DFAC has the Workshops to Prove It!

For lovers of color theory and paint mixing (and who isn’t!), three upcoming opportunities at the Dunedin Fine Art Center are going to be hard to beat. You may just want to mix them all together! DFAC’s award-winning faculty member Melissa Miller Nece has been sharing her knowledge of Michael Wilcox’s School of Color as a registered instructor for years. This year, Michael himself is making a trip from England to present two seminars at the Dunedin Fine Art Center on February 21st and 22nd. Follow that up with Melissa’s own 2 day workshop March 14th and 15th and you’ll be able to call yourself a color expert too!

Irwin Entel Named 2015 Patron of the Arts

When looking to bestow their Patron of the Arts Award at the 8th annual Founders Luncheon, the Sterling Society auxiliary group of the Dunedin Fine Art Center didn’t have to look far for one of Tampa Bay’s outstanding patrons. It’s hard to talk about the Dunedin Fine Art Center and not mention Irwin Entel, M.D. in some capacity. As Gail Gamble, a previous award winner herself noted, “whether you are looking for a committed board member and volunteer, or a generous benefactor, Irwin Entel is all of that and more at DFAC.”
