Classes

Art Classes at Phoenix Center for the ArtsWe 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: the person looking for a new passion in retirement; the hard working breadwinner that needs a place to relax that is completely removed from hustle and bustle; a 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, Mixed Media, Mosaics Music, Painting & Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, Spanish-Language Art, 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, Music, Theatre, Creative Writing and Dance, 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.

Family Classes
These are unique classes designed to meet the needs of families looking for intergenerational activities and education. They range from toddler play and learn classes to family art and Capoeira classes for activating the mind and body.

Dance Classes
We understand how busy life can be. Between work, school, kids and social obligations, it’s hard to set aside time for yourself. The Center has created a series of Drop In classes that allow you as much flexibility as you need.
