Kids Art Classes

We offer art classes for ages 2-10 and teen art classes forcusing on both drawing and cerqmics for ages 11-14 to help build portfolios to apply to the local art highschools or to just hone their skills and develop their own voice. 

The classes here are organized by days of the week, Mondays first, Sunday last soyou can easily find classes on a particular day. 

Some of our classes focus on mediums from drawing, printmaking, ceramics to textiles and soft sculpture to process art classes for little ones and some on themes such as Animals or Under the Sea or Fairylands. 

We are very thoughtful with the age limits for our classes and work hard to create projects that are age appropriate. Please respect our age restrictions. 

If your child is on the spectrum or has a learning challenge, it would be helpful to us if you let us know before class begins.
