One-day daytime art classes in Monterey?

Hi - We will be in Monterey on Thursday and Friday of this week for a conference my husband is attending. I wanted to see if anyone knows of one-time art classes that are offered during the day? I am doing some google searches but wanted to see if any destination experts know of anything off hand? I'm trying to plan my personal itinerary since I will not be attending the conference. I've been to the MBA (loved it as a little kid and on our last visit), and walked Cannery Row areas on my own during our last visit 3 years ago.

My main hope is to find some local artists teaching day classes as I know Monterey has a thriving art community! Or,.. if all else fails, just bringing some of my paints and sitting on a seaside park bench and trying my hand at plein air!

Thanks in advance for your time and help! :o)

I'm not aware of any one-day art classes. The Carmel Art Association might be able to help you. Their gallery features local artists exclusively. http://carmelart.org/

thank you both for your responses! i just realized that we won't be arriving until Thursday afternoon anyway, so Thursday will pretty much be gone with getting my husband to the conference, then registering into our hotel, etc. And I think I have an idea for something that will take up most of my day on Friday. I don't know why I thought we had more time than that.

Thank you again for your time! Looking forward to visiting beautiful Monterey this week!!!!
