Classes & Workshops

Adult and teen classes offer an intimate, exceptional learning experience in an inspiring setting with nationally recognized artists and leading experts in their fields. In order to provide quality instruction in a range of mediums, processes and ideas, The Center often brings instructors from outside the area to teach, therefore classes are often in concentrated periods of time to accommodate visiting instructors. All classes are small in size allowing for as much individual instruction and interaction as possible and accommodating a range of student levels and interests.

Please note: Non-member prices for classes include a $50 Individual Membership. Membership is valid for one year.
