Art Classes

From an antiques course with veteran instructor Daniel Brooks to classes in ceramics, acrylics, painting, art for teens, tuffet-making, calligraphy, creative writing and new classes added each semester, the Academy of the Arts offers our patrons the opportunity to explore new interests and learn from a wide variety of artists in our community. We also have art for children grades 1 through 5 and art for teens grades 6 through 8. Classes run every fall and spring as well as some classes are available over the summer.

If you do not see a class that you were expecting to be available check back soon as classes are added as they become available, or reach out to us by email.
