The Core Curriculum

All classes are 2-3 hours long, and staffed by a live teacher.  Each class starts with an hour-long step-by-step demo students can choose to follow designed to teach specific skills. This lesson is optional, you can also work on your own project and the teacher will help you during class.  Classes are held on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and are geared towards all experience levels.

Art demos are divided up by materials and/or subject and taught at the same time each year.  You can view the weekly class schedule here
