Workshops for Adults

Adult workshops

Take a Danforth Art workshop or short course* to try something new! Workshops meet 1 or 2 times, and short courses, marked with an asterisk, meet 3 to 5 times. Explore a new painting technique, learn how to draw a portrait, make some jewelry, or figure out how to work your digital camera. If you are unable to sign up for a semester-long art class, there are many options to help busy adults make art a part of their life!

Click the cs in the column to see a downloadable PDF of the needed supplies. ## indicates that the class supply list is not yet available. if a class does not need supplies or supplies are provided, the column entry is blank.
