Creative Workshop

Art for all ages=Creative Workshop Art Classes for Everyone

Our hands-on art classes are taught by artist-teachers, and frequently inspired by art on view in the Gallery. We teach, inspire, challenge, prompt and encourage. We love it when you make the artwork you never thought you could make.
