Youth Art Classes

YOUTH CLASSES:
We offer an excellent selection of fun and enriching classes in many of the arts disciplines that youth, ages 4K and up, will enjoy. All classes are offered once a week for each five week session unless noted otherwise. Classes run consecutively on the same day each week. Workshops are offered once per session. Pre-registration is required for all classes and workshops. Taught by experienced art professionals, and designed to provide individual attention and feedback, our classes and workshops are sure to educate and inspire artists of all ages. All supplies are included unless otherwise noted in the class description.

CANCELLATION POLICY:
If you cancel your registration after it has been processed, but at least seven business days before the class begins, we will refund your class fee (less a $10 cancellation fee). If you cancel with less than seven business days’ notice, no refund will be given. ACA reserves the right to cancel classes with low enrollment. If we must cancel a class, we will issue a full refund.
