Creative Workshop Art Classes for Everyone

Grow your creativity and imagine the possibilities at the Creative Workshop! 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—and love it when you make the artwork you never thought you could make. General registration is now open for spring and summer classes.
