Arts Classes

We're Planning Post-Pandemic Programs. Will you help?

As the landscape of COVID-19 continues to shift and vaccination rates increase, ARTS for ALL Wisconsin is assessing options for future programming, including the potential return of in-person programming in some form. We are looking to you -- participants, teaching artists, families, support agencies, everyone -- to help guide our efforts to offer programs and support that meet the needs of our communities.

Please share your thoughts and suggestions online about the future of programming at ARTS for ALL. You can also download and complete a printed copy. Please mail paper copies to our Madison Art Center at 1709 Aberg Avenue, Suite 1, Madison, WI 53704.


Explore the creative arts through classes and workshops in visual art, movement and dance, drama, and music. Classes are taught by professional teaching artists.

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).
