ADULT art classes - no experience required!

Enjoy the best of both worlds--the individual help and focus of a private lesson, and the camaraderie and beneficial information given to other artists.  Students work at their own pace with the subject matter that interests them, and will learn techniques that will accelerate their abilities regardless of experience. In our classes students can work on either drawing, oil or acrylic painting. Students are allowed to switch back and forth between media. 

We also offer private art lessons, that can be customized according to your interests.
