Welcome to Spring 2020 Youth Classes

Spring quarter offers a diverse range of Skillsets, taught by professional teaching artists.

Skillset classes are held online and meet once a week for five weeks.  They are great way to develop art skills and build a portfolio of work during the school year. Each quarter, classes feature different foundation art concepts and are taught by professional teaching artists.

Go digital!  This quarter we have two new digital focused art classes.  Come stretch your creativity, develop a portfolio or try something new! (who knows, you might even make new friends)  No matter what, you’ll come away with a set of skills you can use throughout the year.

A limited number of scholarships are available for qualified applicants.  Apply here.

Concept Studio: Personalizing Your Portfolio – Anna Baldi

Enroll Now

Are you ready to take your artwork beyond still lives and figure drawing? Are you curious what impact art can have outside of the classroom? In this course we will spend each week exploring a different theme, such as the self, sustainability, or social justice. We will look at different contemporary artists each week, and then have guided class time to make an artwork around each theme using a variety of 2D and 3D media. This class is perfect for anyone creating a portfolio for art school, looking to experiment with a new medium in a safe environment, or who is interested in making a social impact with their artwork.
