Classes at The Art Studio provide a supportive, inspiring, and creative small group environment to help children and teens take their work to the next level. We offer semi-private classes in a variety of mediums and topics.


Small classes are great for those who want to learn or enhance a specific skill or technique, build confidence, work on an in-depth art project, or just enjoy creative time in the studio!

Spring Classes begin in April. Check classes for specific dates.

Missed Class Policy:

  • Hopefully your child can attend all classes in the session, but we understand that absences occur and we will do our best to get them caught up with the project(s) during future classes. If the materials are available and lend themselves well to creating art at home, we will do our best send your child home with materials to complete the project on their own.

  • We do not offer refunds, credits, or make up classes for missed classes during our class sessions. Due to our class and teacher's schedules, we are not able to provide make-up time in the studio and our teachers cannot provide individual lessons for classes missed. Please note that it is not always possible to make up projects due to specialized materials (clay, for example) or techniques taught during the class. 


Cancellation Policy:

  • Payment is due in full at time of registration. $10 + the materials fee is a non-refundable deposit. In the event of a cancellation, tuition will be refunded up to 7 days prior to the start of class. Within 7 days of the class start date, class tuition is non-refundable.

  • A minimum of 4 students must be enrolled in order for class to be held. You will be notified you if your class might not run due to low enrollment and refunded your payment.
