Teens 12+ have a chance to work at their level on Thursdays. This group will focus on skill development in art, as well as working on community and collaborative projects.

Students are encouraged to develop their own projects and ideas with the guidance of a professional artist.

Little artists, ages 3-6 (with or without parents-up to parent discretion/must me toilet trained) get to explore various media and make a fun mess away from home! This class is about learning to create, use colour and materials. We will make a fun project to take home each week. 

More Programs:

Sessions by appointment -choose your time. Advanced artists welcome! 

Anyone looking to deepen their artistic practice and expand their learning is welcome to book in to the studio and "play" with supplies and techniques as they're trained. Consult with a professional artist and create in a social atmosphere. Professionals, hobbyists, teens, seniors are all welcome. Call ahead to make sure the timing is ideal.
