Academic Year: Weekend Classes

During the fall, winter, and spring, teen classes are held on Saturdays and one-day workshops on Sundays. Classes meet once a week for ten weeks or attend a one-day workshop. Introduce yourself to the fundamentals of drawing, or work with a variety of materials to create your first installation art. Practice various approaches to figure drawing or learn the basics in animation. Learn how material, form, and space define sculpture. Whether you are new to art or advanced in your skills and seeking a creative challenge, Studio Art Classes is a fun way to explore the medium, improve your technique, and meet other art enthusiasts!
