2021 Fall Art Bites Classes

Go on, take a bite!

Have you been curious about trying an art class, but not sure what medium you would like? Not ready to commit to a full class (and art supplies) if you don’t know you’ll like it?  Why not try this sampler course?

Art Bites is a course designed to give you a taste of a variety of art mediums. Each 2-hour class introduces you to a new medium and show you the basic techniques using a small array of supplies. Everything is provided; you don’t have to bring a thing!  Go home each week with a piece of your own and a sense of how this art medium works.

Pick and choose one or more classes. Classes are $35 each.  

AM classes are 10am-12pm;  PM classes are 1-3 pm.
