Drawing, Painting & Printmaking

When you take a drawing, painting, or printmaking class, you’ll be a part of a devoted community of visual artists, young and old, beginning and experienced. You can choose from a wide range of classes to help you grow your skills from novice to professional artist. You’ll even have opportunities to exhibit and sell your work.

Try a watercolor, oil painting, figure drawing, or printmaking quarterly class, or a one-day workshop to discover a medium you love. You can dive deep into one art form, or experiment with a variety of genres. Give yourself the gift of space and time to work on your art while receiving caring feedback from your instructors and fellow classmates.

Popular classes for families and youth include Terribly Terrific Twos for toddlers and their parents, I Can Do It Art for early elementary students, and Anime/Manga Cartooning for teens.
