From an antiques course with veteran instructor Daniel Brooks to classes in ceramics, acrylics, painting, art for teens, stained glass, 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.
