ArtReach Academy


ArtReach Academy is a program of progressive, skill-building art lessons. The goals are to ignite a passion for art making and creative expression in each individual and to provide the means for students to develop their visual art skills.

Classes are open to students ages 10+. Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 students for individualized instruction.

Each student will complete self-assessments and work with their instructor to measure their growth. At the end of each course the instructor will recommend the next appropriate series.

All students will receive their own sets of required materials to use in class and at home. These materials are included in the course fees and are yours to keep.
