Saturday Kids Classes


Saturday Kids classes offer a fun and supportive environment for kids 7-12 years of age, encouraging them to explore their imagination and develop creative skills. Every class is different; led by a professional artist from our community demonstrating a variety of art mediums and techniques including drawing, painting and art & crafts.

Now Available for Children 3 – 6 years of age!
Please be aware that art projects for Saturday Kids Classes are intended for children 7 – 11 year of age; with that in mind children under 6 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Adults must be actively involved to help, guide and assist throughout the art project as it can be difficult for some children under 7. Children must be able to sit quietly, listen to instruction and follow directions. Running, screaming and misusing supplies will be signs that the child is not ready.

Please Note: This is a drop-in fee; we do not offer pre-registration for Saturday classes.
Art supplies provided by the Arts Center.
