Our youth and family programs encourage creative exploration and self-expression as lifelong skills. From one-day workshops to week-long summer art camps in clay, painting, drawing, fused glass, performing arts, and more, there's no limit to the creative fun and learning.

Youth classes & workshops

Youth aged 4-18 will find year-round arts learning opportunities in a variety of mediums. Our youngest artists enjoy accessible, shorter workshops that encourage exploration and process. Youth aged 6-12 can explore a medium in depth or express their own unique personalities in special projects. Teens make Artistry their artistic home by participating in arts learning experiences designed just for them and connecting with other art-loving teens in a fun, welcoming atmosphere. Families and multi-generational groups can make art together in our family workshops and annual Family Arts Day.
