Classes are offered for all abilities from beginner to advanced. Our goal is to provide an accessible and safe space for all creative outlets. Classes are offered daily with morning, afternoon, and evening options.
Classes are taught in a variety of traditional mediums like painting, drawing, printmaking, and ceramics. Specialty classes, such as metals, mixed media, and calligraphy, are also offered. We hire local, practicing artists who have a background and passion for art education. Their mission is to foster a path for students to reach their artistic goals.
