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.

In order to receive the membership rate for a class, nonmembers are asked to sign up for an individual membership. Memberships are valid for one year from the purchase date.

Classes may be cancelled. Notifications to students usually take place between 10-14 days prior to the class start date.

Scholarships for Classes

The Center offers scholarships to art classes offered through The Center, contact Sarah Kolash, Education Coordinator, for more information on these scholarships.
