ArtReach Academy


ArtReach Academy is a new program beginning in September 2019! 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 to 18. Classes are limited to a maximum of 10 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.
