Classes & Programs


Looking for engaging art experiences that will teach your child about great artists, techniques, vocabulary and new skills? Want your child to explore a variety of mediums, learn how to look at and discuss art? Foster your child’s creativity with lessons that will benefit them beyond our studio! Kids who are exposed to the arts are better students, critical thinkers and problem solvers.

Kids can sign up for special “Kids” or “All Ages” classes. Our “Parent Add $10” gives parents the opportunity to take a class with their child at a reduced price.
