Crealde School of Art
Crealde School of Art is truly an invisible gem of Orlando, hiding humbly behind a Publix grocery plaza in all of its fairy-garden glory. This scenic art school offers art classes year-round for both children and adults. Students can study all sorts of visual art here with classes in painting, drawing, jewelry, ceramics, photography (the stuff of dark rooms), and even fiber arts. If Crealde’s location in historic Winter Park is far, take classes at their Winter Garden location in partnership with the Jessie Brock Community Center. Crealde is also home to many galleries that house artwork of its students, faculty, and visiting artists. If enrolling in a series of classes is too much of a commitment, attend one of their special events or workshops like “Date Night Ceramics,” or “The Business of Photography.”
