Art Explorer Classes

Classes are run by semester (Sept-Dec, Jan-Apr, May-Aug). All classes require a $35 registration fee per semester. Classes are $80 per four-week session, the last session of the semester will be pro-rated if it is less than four-weeks long. Jump in any time - we can pro-rate your classes based on start date!*

Our Art Explorer classes are a new take on becoming a well rounded artist. Students will have opportunity to earn pins based on each new skill acquired. This will give us a tangible map to follow as we explore a multitude of media and really expand our artistic endeavors! We offer each of our group classes twice per week. Tuesday sessions are taught by Bri and focus on 2D art and Thursday sessions are taught by Chriztie and focus on 3D art. Students are welcome to come to either or both sessions - no commitment is required. All in-class materials are covered by the registration fee, and each session includes membership to the Art Den, to allow students to work on projects outside of class. Students must have entered middle school to be left at the Art Den unsupervised and additional clay, paper, and canvas used outside of class time must be purchased.

Little Art Explorers
