YOUTH ART CLASSES

In our after-school art club, our focus is primarily to help children build a strong relationship between themselves and the studio space by establishing an art practice. Teachers routinely bring in new mediums and new techniques to share with students, however teachers also pay close attention to the artistic choices that a student makes, acknowledge their creative process, and speak to them about their art practice to both enrich and challenge their work.

Materials fees are included in the tuition pricing.  You do not need to bring any materials.

Pre-registration is required three days before the start of class or workshop.  You are not registered unless paid in full.

If you are a Clemson resident your discount will be applied before you pay.
