Art Classes & Workshops

We believe that anyone can make art.

Art Works! Studio offers both group and private lessons for the novice to the experienced student. Our classes and workshops explore the creative process and self-expression through various art media, subject matter, and techniques. We structure our content based on the individual’s learning profile: strengths and weaknesses, interests and talents, learning style and unique language, learning and behavioral needs. We offer traditional art (skill-based) and expressive arts (healing for wellbeing) for adults, as well as children’s art programs focused specifically on their developmental needs

Thanks for stopping by! Please visit often as new offerings are being continuously listed.
