Youth: Gallery/Studio Program

Registration is now open for our spring 2021 virtual classes!

The Gallery/Studio Program offers fun, challenging studio art courses. Be inspired by professional teaching artists and spend time discussing artworks from our exhibitions, learn new skills and techniques, and create your own art using both new and traditional materials. Classes are available for children, teens, and adults. All levels of experience welcome!

Our spring 2021 courses will take place entirely online. Each class, we’ll take a virtual visit to our galleries and participants will make art at home, with live guidance from our instructors.

What you’ll need:

  • Internet access and an internet-connected device with audio and video capabilities. A computer or laptop is highly recommended, but participants can join by phone or tablet if needed.
  • Zoom, which will be our primary platform. No account is required, and secure links and passwords will be provided.
  • Adequate space for making art.
  • Art supplies, as listed on each class's supply list, provided by email. Participants are responsible for securing the supplies needed for each class (for example, if you already have scissors and glue, you don’t need to order them), and the cost of art supplies is not included in the class fee.
