Adult Education


We have expanded our adult education program for the upcoming season to include a variety of workshops. Various media, traditional and new techniques, as well as classes for personal growth are all offered. Invite a friend to take a workshop with you! With such a varied curriculum, there is sure to be one or more workshops that will appeal to you. Our courses provide a great opportunity to expand your creativity, meet an interesting artist, and make new friends.
