Adult students experience a warm, congenial and supportive environment to learn and create in. The large roster of programs are designed to allow each individual to advance at his or her own pace. Each class offers a nice balance between challenging, fun, creative, and skill-based approaches. We believe working with professional instructors who are practicing artists helps to inspire students and ensures that the latest studio approaches are being taught.
Small class sizes allow for plenty of one-on-one attention, guidance and critique. The School fosters a real sense of community where both novice and advanced students can find programs that enhance their individual styles of learning.
Students are given various opportunities to display their work both at the School and at outside venues like galleries and restaurants. Our online gallery, Facebook page and Flickr page allows adults to showcase their work to a wider audience.
Students are responsible for purchasing their own materials for their class unless otherwise stated.
