Upcoming Workshops

A rich experience awaits the everyday artist who seeks a break from the stresses of life. When life so easily entangles our soul and steals the joy right out of our days we need a place to rest. Art classes, taught by national teaching artists, give our students a safe place to express themselves visually. Whether this is your first time, or you’re a seasoned artist who desires to refine your skills, our workshops offer a variety of options to allow your creative spirit to soar.

If there are prerequisites for classes or experience needed, the workshop description will clearly tell you. Otherwise, if you are interested, dive in! You can do it! Our talented instructors are thrilled to teach beginners and experienced “everyday artists” alike!
