Do you know an emerging artist?

Give your child a creative edge with a class at CIA. The office of Continuing Education offers a variety of art courses for students in grades 5-12. Our classes build upon fundamental skills through drawing, painting, digital art, and craft. For older students, there are more advanced classes designed to help build portfolio pieces for college entrance. Supplies are included in the cost of our Young Artists classes unless otherwise noted.

Our summer session will run Monday-Friday, June 8 - 19. Registration is open through Friday, May 15.
