Classes & Workshops

Artistry offers classes and workshops at the beautiful Bloomington Center for the Arts for adults and youth of all abilities - from beginners to experienced students - in clay, painting and drawing, fused glass, and much more. Business of Art classes provide information on career development, finance, marketing, and other topics relevant to practicing artists, and Affiliated Arts workshops offer students the chance to try a medium outside the traditional scope of fine arts. All of our classes and workshops are led by skilled professionals with subject matter expertise and a commitment to each student's development.
