Art Classes & Workshops in The Studio at the Elliott Museum

The Elliott Museum offers a variety of creative opportunities during the year for adults and children in our beautiful working art studio. Enjoy weekly classes in watercolor, drawing, painting, polymer clay, Life Draw, ceramics, photography, and more.  Art Camps are offered for artists 7-14 during the summer months when the kids are out of school.  Art classes for adults are offered Fall through May during the year for all skill levels. Most of the adult classes are offered during Winter Season. Please check back to see what’s new – classes are being added.

Payment & Refund Policy: Participants must provide their own materials for most classes (list provided at sign-up) or purchase the required materials from the instructor. Classes are for Adults 18+ and minimum of 6, maximum of 12 students unless otherwise stated. Payment at registration will hold your spot. There are no refunds or make-ups for missed classes, and no refunds after registration unless the class has filled past the minimum number required to hold the class. Classes may be postponed or canceled one week before the class if the minimum has not been met (registrations accepted after the deadline if minimum has been met). If we cancel the class, we will issue a full refund or credit to another class.

Please Note: 2019 weekly class schedule has been truncated as are currently going through some internal restructuring.  We will continue with Life Draw on Wednesdays through May, and Summer Art Camps will run June & July.   We are in the process of scheduling several Girls’ Night Out and Lunch ‘n’ Learn classes, so stay tuned!

Private Adult Parties – Do you have a friend with a birthday coming up?  An office retirement to celebrate?  Just want to get together with the girls and do something fun?  Schedule a private afternoon or evening special event with the craft of your choice in our art studio.  We provide the instructor and all materials, and you can choose to include lunch for day classes or wine and snacks for evening classes.  For events with 8 – 20 participants.  Cost per person depends on the cost of materials and other options; the schedule depends on the availability of the instructor.  Call to discuss your event.
