Courses for All Ages

Preschool Courses & Workshops

Socialization through art and play is a key factor in your child's growth and development. Our programs offer a broad range of structured art and socializing activities such as drawing, painting, making collages, creating puppets, and using papier mache and clay. Ages 3 to 6.

Children Courses & Workshops

We offer many opportunities for children of different ages to explore materials and processes in a fun environment. They'll experiment with charcoal, pastels, and paint in our drawing and painting courses, while the clay courses will encourage them to create three-dimensional objects. Courses are offered on both weekends and weekdays after school.

Youth Courses & Workshops

Weekend and weekday after-school programs provide students ages 12 to 17 with opportunities to have fun developing their creative skills. Hands-on courses range from learning the art of mehndi and comic book illustration to creating unique items in clay using a potter's wheel.

Adult Courses & Workshops

Our courses for adults and young adults range from introductory to more advanced levels. We offer drawing, painting, pottery, and more. In our large ceramics studio, pottery courses are available in hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques.

Workshops are great for brief explorations of a new medium or subject. You can also explore more deeply to develop specific skills. Topics in our art studios include Digital Photography and Chinese Brush Painting. In the ceramics studio, you can learn Glaze Making and Raku Firing.
