Weekly classes support in-depth learning of foundational skills and techniques for adults of all levels of ability and experience, and in a variety of media. Workshops are perfect for newcomers looking to first experiment with art-making, and for returning students to explore a new medium or technique.

Classes are offered in a variety of media, for all levels of ability and experience, and listed by media below.
