Adult Technique Classes to Art Beat: BYOB Workshops

 UPDATE ON CLASSES & EVENTS 

All Art Center events and classes will be cancelled through the end of April. Classes and event tickets will be refunded or credited towards future classes/events. Please be patient, we are working on contacting all participants individually for refunds/credits. 

Enjoy the little things in life!

It doesn't matter your level of experience, we promise if you come to art class here you will have a fun time!

We offer adult technique classes like oil painting, drawing, and pottery. Most of these are 4-6 week sessions.

Our Art Beat: BYOB Workshops are 2-3 hour workshops. Our instructors will guide you through a step by step artsy process mostly using acrylics on canvas to create a finished masterpiece that you get to take home! We like to throw other fun projects into this mix from string art to jewelry making. Again, no experience required, just bring your creativity and any snacks/beverages you'd like.


Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Your space will not be confirmed until both your registration and payment have been received!

Something unexpected come up? Bummer!

Let us know at least 48 hours before the actual class date and you’ll be refunded the full amount. If you need to cancel within 48 hours of the class date, you’ll receive an internal credit to use towards another class. By canceling within 24 hours of a class or not showing up, you will not get a refund or credit. Thank you for understanding.

Space is limited and often times we have a waiting list. Please let us know as early as possible if you’re not able to make it, there might be someone else who can!
