Youth On-Going Programs

Art is a language all its own. When children draw, paint, print, sculpt, or mold a piece of clay, they integrate the fundamentals of line, pattern, color, texture and value into their vocabulary. Let your child explore this fantastic frontier and let their imaginations run wild.

  • Our youth classes teach art fundamentals in an open, non-competitive studio environment, introducing each student to the gift of art.
  • Art Students League classes can enhance art education received at school or fill a void if there is none.
  • Our professional art educators are experienced in teaching kids about the essentials of art.
  • We’re flexible! You can register and pay for only the classes you plan to attend each month.

We offer exciting and engaging youth classes throughout the year!

Procedural Agreements for Fall/Spring Youth Classes

I. Pick-Up/Drop-Off

Because we care about the safety of your children, parents/guardians must escort their children to and from their assigned studio. Please be sure your child arrives on time for class and is picked up promptly.  For youth aged 11+, parents/guardians have the option to sign a waiver form allowing children to sign themselves in and out of the classroom.

***Please note, your student’s classroom will open 5 minutes before the class begins.  Please wait until that time to allow the instructor to set up.
