Danforth Art offers a wide range of creative workshops and inspired short classes for all levels of ability and experience. Try It’s! and one-session workshops, and short classes of fewer than six classes are opportunities for newcomers to explore art-making, and for returning students to experiment with a new medium or technique.
Workshops are listed in chronological order below, and when applicable, prerequisites are noted in the workshop description. If you are unsure if a particular class is right for you, please call the School Office for assistance.
Class Supply lists for each class are available as downloadable PDFs and can be found in the CS column below. Students are expected to bring supplies to the first class. ## 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. For information about where to purchase art supplies, click here.
