Art Classes @ Joslyn

JOSLYN ART CLASSES for preschoolers, youth, and adults are offered year-round. Class themes are inspired by artworks from the Museum’s permanent collection and special exhibitions and incorporate visits to the galleries and gardens into the art-making process. Classes are lead by accomplished artists and art educators from the community who are eager to share their artistic insights and technical skills to beginning and advanced artists alike. Subjects and themes change with each season; winter-spring, summer, and fall. Areas of focus include art fundamentals as well as unique art-making experiences related to special exhibitions.

All in-studio classes haven been suspended due to Covid-19.

Virtual Studio classes & camps for youth, teens, and adults are in development.
