ASLD art classes youth teen

YOUTH PROGRAMS ages 6–13

We believe that giving kids the tools to create freely is fundamental to a healthy and happy childhood.

Our youth courses and camps, available for kids ages 6–13, encourage young artists to explore while also giving them the foundational skills they need to make their artistic ideas come to life.

We offer spaces for creating that are fun, non-competitive, and non-outcome based so that kids can truly experience the full range of artistic creation.

TEEN PROGRAMS ages 14–17

Our Teen Studio offerings continue the model of our youth programs by giving teens the tools to create what they want on their own terms.

Of the teen courses available, Teen Studio, held every Friday night and open to teens ages 14–17, has become a staple for young creatives looking for their community.

Studio nights offer participating teens access to high-quality art supplies and the guidance of professional faculty artists as they work independently on projects of their choosing. Teen Studio fosters a unique community amongst the participating teens, as they lean on one another for artistic input, co-create together for exhibits and pop-up shows, and bond over pizza!

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.

To ensure that everyone has an enjoyable class experience, disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. At the discretion of ASLD, disruptive students may be expelled without refund. The disciplinary procedures are:

  • Disruptive behavior will be addressed by the classroom teacher.
  • Chronic disruptive behavior will be documented and student will be sent to the office. If necessary, parents will be called and will be asked to pick-up their child for the day.
  • Extreme disciplinary problems, including fighting, bullying, or other disruptive behavior, may result in expulsion.
