Classes for Adults

The Art Academy offers an extensive selection of classes to satisfy the artistic needs of adults within our community. All classes focus on improving skills and are taught with thorough explanation and demonstration. We suggest, but do not assign, homework. We welcome both beginning and advanced students in all of our adult courses. There are no prerequisites to attend our programs.
