Tysons After Dark: McLean Project for the Arts Offering Zoom Classes

Nightlife is zilch in Tysons at the moment due to the pandemic. After a brief hiatus, the “Tysons After Dark” series is back to highlight different online activities from local organizations that keep people busy once the sun goes down. 

McLean Community Center is closed, so the McLean Project for the Arts is shifting its art classes from in-person to online.

MCC announced the Zoom classes in its recent newsletter. Now, people can register for the classes, which include watercolor, painting, drawing and more.

Some classes are in the afternoons, while others are in the evening. The classes are on a set schedule with predetermined time slots on different days. Prices vary from class to class.

Here are some of the upcoming ones:

MPA is also offering a new class on experimental portraiture with former MPA faculty and staff member Arthur Kwon Lee, who is currently in New York City, the newsletter said.

More about the class:

The history of art cannot be told without witnessing portraiture painting in its myriad of forms. This class explores different approaches to creating the human gaze. Through the lens of art history exercises and alternative mark making approaches, artists will discover new ways to excavate the world of portraiture with excitement. Our class will emulate multiple modalities of portraiture from the De Koonings, the cubists and beyond.

The class is on Tuesdays from 7:30-9:30 p.m., starting April 21.

People who are staying at home with small kids can keep them entertained with Abrakadoodle classes.

People who are interested or have questions can contact Briana Clorey at [email protected]
