Classes are semi-private group classes that are open to beginners. Students benefit from small class sizes of less than eight, getting individual attention and assistance.  Do you want to dabble in a new art form or pick up tips from an instructor? Or, are you looking for a short series to further explore an art form? Either way, we have something for you. Come, bring a friend and create at The Art Lab. All materials are provided. Our instructors are professional teaching artists and have all had a national background check completed.
