Artistic experiences happen in the inspiring atmosphere of the studio and on location at areas of natural beauty and interest.

After-school art programs are offered Tuesdays during the school year between Labor Day and Memorial Day from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. in the studio for children and youth ages 6 and up. Activities include drawing, painting, printmaking, pottery, sculpture, batik, etc. Art materials include pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastel, marker, paint pen, watercolor, acrylic, oil, inks, spray paint, papers for collage, wax and fabric dye, mixed media, etc. We have a printmaking press, two potter's wheels, and a kiln.

Instruction, advice, and encouragement on technique, approach, subject matter, and levels of development add to the overall studio atmosphere of accomplishment, along with the wit and delight of doing artwork. Students of all levels and ages participate. For example, on Wednesday afternoons we have eight first through 10th graders all working on a variety of activities of their choice.

Cost is $75 for four lessons with a $5 materials fee. We ask that participants commit to four lessons at a time. If you miss a date due to illness or such we move it on to the next week. We have students who have done art with us for years! Join us!
