Our main mission with this program is to provide youth with a deeper understanding of the crucial roles art plays in all aspects of life from decorative arts, design, fine art, performance, crafts, and to underscore there are many avenues to explore in the field.We are now accepting students for 2021. Classes meet on Tuesdays (ages 7–11) and Thursdays (ages 12 and up). Young artists receive a snack, then get on to making art!
