AAC offers a stimulating schedule of art classes year-round for novice and seasoned artists of all ages, from toddlers to adults. Taught by experienced professional artists, AAC’s classes are small, scheduled around the school and work day, and tuition is affordable. AAC’s art students have access to the excellent contemporary art in our galleries to help stimulate and inspire their own efforts.

Classes for Toddlers & Caregivers: In keeping with research suggesting the value of art in early childhood education, AAC offers its My First Portfolio program for preschoolers. Working alongside their caregiver, young children hone cognitive, sensory, and motor skills, and explore their creativity with age-appropriate art activities. Both toddlers and caregivers benefit from this unique and artistic bonding experience.

Classes for Children: Classes for school-age students introduce techniques, including drawing, painting, clay modeling, collage, and more. Many classes introduce themes from art history and current events. Students interact with a professional instructor, meet contemporary artists, and see innovative artwork in the galleries, while developing their creative skillsets.

Classes for Teens: Classes for teens at AAC are focused on specific themes or techniques, and aim to develop fundamental skills as well as individual artistic voice.

Classes for Adults: Both beginners and experienced artists will find engaging classes at AAC. Our class schedule regularly features drawing, painting, printmaking, and mixed media classes. In addition to professional instruction, adult students are regularly exposed to the work of contemporary artists.
