Adult In-Person Art Classes

Welcome to our bright and spacious art school! With small classes so our talented artist instructors can give you one-on-one guidance and feedback, it’s way better than learning from a pre-recorded video! As always, all materials for our in-person classes are included!

Most of our art classes for adults are designed for beginner to intermediate level students, unless otherwise stated. And, if you’ve taken a class before, we will cover new subjects and increase the skill level. If you enjoy learning new techniques and getting helpful guidance, attend throughout the year and we’ll keep inspiring and coaching you to improve.

Looking for classes over the summer? As summer is so busy, we switch to workshops in July and August. We have lots of options to try, so it’s easy to find classes you’ll love for the fall. Explore them now and join us for a fun, creative summer!
Be the first to know about each session of new classes, so you don’t miss out. Sign up for our email newsletter!
