The Fine Art Program for teens at the Art Center:
  • develops skills in the arts
  • promotes creative expression
  • builds confidence
  • takes place in a fun and supportive environment

We offer a variety of art classes throughout the school year and summer camps. Classes are available in drawing, painting, ceramics, digital photography, and mixed-media. Professional art instructors are perfect for all skill levels from beginners to more advanced artists. Small group sizes allow for individual attention.

Students age 16+ can also register for some of our adult art classes. Please contact Fanny Retsek, Studio Program Director, at fanny.retsek@cityofpaloalto.org to find out which adult art classes are currently open to students age 16+.
