Art Classes at Phoenix Center for the Arts

We know that art changes and saves lives. Our classes offer artistic enrichment taught by award-winning professionals in a friendly community that is a home-away-from-home for many students. There are many types of students here at the Center: the person looking for a new passion in retirement; the hard working business executive that needs a place to relax that is completely removed from hustle and bustle; the child needing something safe and constructive to do after school. There’s a class for you here, too.

Adult Classes
We have many different classes for adults, including Ceramics, Dance, Glass, Metals & Jewelry, Mosaics, Music, Online Classes, Painting & Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, Art of Self, Clases de Arte en Español (Spanish-Language Art Classes), and Writing. We also have the facilities to support students whether they are interested in making art for fun, as a career, or both!

Teen Classes and Workshops
Our teen classes and workshops are an integral part of our Teen Artist Guild program. Teens can join the Teen Artist Guild (also known as TAG) for a small annual fee and attend classes, workshops, and lectures for free. Teens not wishing to join the guild may still attend these functions, but will be required to pay small one-time workshop fees.

Youth Classes
Do you have a budding musician or want to offer your child something to draw on besides your walls? Not only do we offer classes in Art, Dance, Music, and Theatre, we also offer a philosophy of cooperation and imagination. We teach children the value of the art from the perspective of artists and appreciators. Some children will be inspired to make art as they grow, some will choose science. But, they will choose from an informed perspective.

Online Classes
Our newest department provides art education in a digital and flexible format to fit your busy schedule.

Want to try out a new art form, but not sure if it’s right for you?  Sign up for a Workshop and find out.
