Creative Classes for Preschoolers to Teens

Each class is tailored to a particular age group. We offer a variety of art experiences and individual growth through drawing, painting, ceramics, art history, found objects, printmaking, and much more. We teach art techniques, freedom of expression, problem solving, and the elements and principles of art and design. Each child’s ability is carefully taken into consideration. We are proud to present our students’ work annually during our Community School of the Arts Exhibit.
STUDENTS MUST BE SIGNED UP AHEAD OF TIME. You can register over the phone or in person. 509-925-2670
