This after school art program is ideal for ages 10-15. Class size is limited so that students receive one-on-one instruction in a friendly, non-competitive environment. All supplies will be provided for this class.

Drop-in Studio Sampler Program

(Ages 16 +) Want to learn how to create art? The Studio Sampler Series is the perfect place to start for absolute beginners. Each week, we will explore the basics of a particular medium, technique, and style or art movement, while throwing in a little art history for context, as well as a brief tour of the current exhibition. Every class is different, allowing you to sample drawing, painting, printmaking, and more! We bring the supplies and you bring your curiosity and creativity.
Instructor: Kyle L. Poirier
