Arts Classes

 


Explore the creative arts through classes and workshops in visual art, movement/dance, drama and music. Classes are taught by professional teaching artists. Join us for classes in visual arts including watercolors, acrylic painting, mixed media sculpting and photography and music and movement classes including drumming, singing, dancing, exploring a large variety of musical instruments and props, and much, much more!

A limited number of need-based scholarships are available through the generosity of ARTS for ALL Wisconsin Sponsors. Contact us directly for more information or check our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

Not sure if a Virtual Arts class is right for you? Try it out for free! Just follow this link or under the Useful Links sidebar (Try It Out). For no cost you will have access to an hour long opportunity to get familiar with the Zoom interface, meet teaching artists and fellow participants, and try out a project like you might expect from a full 6-week session class. Not for you after all? There is absolutely no obligation to sign up for a session afterward.
