Young Artist Classes

Give your child the edge—participation in the arts has been proven to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills, nurture motivation, and add to overall academic achievement and success.

The Office of Continuing Education + Community Outreach offers a variety of studio art classes for students in grades 5-12. Our classes build upon fundamental skills through drawing, painting, and 3D design, as well as advanced classes that help build an art portfolio for college entrance. Specialty classes often include ceramics, animation, and jewelry.

Supplies are included in the cost of our Young Artists classes unless otherwise noted.
