Visual Arts Workshops

Visual Arts Workshops are short classes that give the participant a taste of a specific visual arts skill. Workshops are project-specific where the students come away with a finished product. Most workshops are one-day classes on Saturdays ranging between 2 - 4 hours long. Some workshops might be more than one class and offered during the week. Make sure to check the day your workshop is offered. Workshops change throughout the year so check the website and calendar often to see what new workshops are being offered.
