Adult art classes currently enrolling for:

January 11- March 20

We offer five levels of study suited to everyone from absolute beginners to those developing their own body of artwork. Students may remain in any level for as long as they would like; instructors will adjust lessons to accommodate new and returning students. Our diverse faculty pool allows students to study painting, drawing and other media with instructors from many backgrounds and perspectives.

Please note: classes labelled “On-Site” take place at the Danforth, classes labelled “On-Line” take place via Zoom.

 
 
 
 

We want to help choose a class that’s right for you.

Beginning classes- are for people who may have never taken an art class before. The instructor will explain suggested materials on the first day of class.

Foundations classes- are for those who have taken one or more beginning level classes; instructors offer lessons which build off beginning level concepts. Students may remain in either level for several sessions.

Intermediate classes- are for those who have taken some classes and would like more focused and complex study. Many students remain in intermediate level for a year or more. Advanced classes are for those who have been studying for several years and seek instruction which will expand current skill and content goals.

Independent and Professional- classes are for those who have a body of work and would like individualized critique to help develop specific personal artistic goals.
