Classes & Workshops

Help your teen develop skills in the arts, experience the power of creative expression, build confidence, and explore their interests, all in a fun and supportive environment.

We offer a variety of art classes and summer camps for the artist in every student. Many classes are offered for every interest and skill level in a broad range of media, including traditional media such as drawing, painting, and ceramics, and new media such as digital photography and stop-motion animation.

Because classes and camps are taught by highly trained professional artist instructors with limited group sizes, students of all ages receive individualized attention.

Summer Camp Registration is open!

Classes with an asterisk (*) are held at Mitchell Park.
