Classes & Programs

All Ages

Calling all beginner artists - young and old! Our teachers adapt lessons to varying ages in the same class. Our studio accommodates separate groups of adults and kids. “All Ages” classes allow novice adult artists to learn the basics alongside younger artists. Parents, grandparents or mentors can take a class with a child at a reduced price (“Parent Add $10”).
