Select the semester you’re interested in and click search for a full list of classes during that time frame. You can narrow your search by selecting a “tag” such as “spring break” or “painting.”

We are usually able to accept walk-ins for most classes but we greatly appreciate having you register online in advance. In the case where space or supplies are limited, preference will be given to those who have registered. On the flip side, classes may be cancelled due to low advance registrations. You registering in advance helps us better prepare to give you a great art experience AND means that we’ll be able to notify you if there are last minute changes or notices for a class.

 

We offer classes for all ages and abilities with the goal of providing arts access to everyone. Our regular programming includes…

 

Free Art Days

FREE ART DAYS run for two hours one weekend day per month and are time for all ages to use our space and our materials to get creative. You can stay for a little (15 minutes) or stay for a lot (the whole 2 hours) or anything in between. Stop in any time to have some fun and make some beautiful art!
