Art School: Spring Youth / Teens

Welcome to the Youth Fine Arts (YFA) Department!

EAC invites kids and teens to get messy, discover new modes of making, and explore the visual arts. Youth classes spark the imagination, teach technical skills, promote creative problem-solving, build respect for the expression of others, and inspire a lifelong connection to the visual arts and art making.

We teach young students art forms such as 3D printing, cartooning, ceramic hand-building and wheel throwing, drawing and painting, etched jewelry, game programming, mixed media, printmaking, and sculpture, among many others!

Our diverse faculty of practicing artists ensures there is something for every kid. Each instructor teaches a creative, educational and fun class sure to build confidence, skills and experience.

Roll up your sleeves and start creating!
