The Morean Arts Center is known for its gallery, its hot shop (site of popular glass-blowing demos) and for its Chihuly Collection, the museum devoted to internationally renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly. But it’s also home to a mind-enriching menu of classes in a wide variety of genres, with teachers well-known on the local art scene like painters Marc Levasseur and Neverne Covington and innovative writing workshops like “Writer’s Gym,” where “just like personal trainers, we’ll give each other the tips, tricks and gentle pushes which build strong writing muscles,” taught in partnership with Keep St. Pete Lit’s LitSpace Literary Arts Institute.
Winter Session 1: Jan. 7-Feb 17; Winter Session 2: Feb. 25-Apr. 7; Spring Session: Apr. 15-May 26. Each session lasts 6 weeks, with class meeting once per week. 719 Central Ave., 727-822-7872, moreanartscenter.org.
