We offer year-round weekly art classes to children ages 4 to 18. All classes are 1.5 hours in length (except Portfolio Development class which is 2 hrs).  Students may enroll at any time during the year.  Once enrolled, students may continue for as long as they like.

  • Children in our Explorers (4-7) and Foundations (7-10) programs will rotate through different materials and techniques each week with new lessons developed by our teaching staff each week. 
  • Children in our Advanced Study program will work on selected media & subject matter based on their individual interests.
