The Youth Department is a haven for young artists and creatives, offering a plethora of art forms to explore. From traditional drawing and painting to digital art, mixed media, printmaking, and more, we have something for everyone. Our programs cater to students aged 6-8, 9-11, and 12-17. Students aged 14 and above can also attend most adult classes and workshops.

Our programs are carefully designed to provide age-appropriate experiences that are both fun and educational. Our experienced instructors help students develop technical skills, critical thinking, self-confidence, and the ability to communicate and express themselves. We offer specialized and advanced studio arts not commonly found in schools, such as glass, metal, wood, and ceramics. Our students get to work with high-quality materials and equipment, learning from the best in the industry. Join us to unleash your creativity and explore the world of art!
