Children's Art Classes

Help your children develop skills in the arts, experience the power of creative expression, build confidence, and explore their interests, all in a fun and supportive environment.

We offer a variety of art classes and summer camps for the artist in every child, from preschoolers to teens. Dozens of classes are offered for every interest and skill level in a broad range of media, including traditional media such as drawing, painting, and ceramics, and new media such as digital and video.

Because classes and camps are taught by highly trained professional artist instructors with limited group sizes, students of all ages receive individualized attention. Instructors vary their curriculum quarterly, so classes may be taken over and over by the same students.

Spring Registration opens March 1, 8:30 a.m. for Palo Alto Residents and March 8 for

non-residents. Check out the Art Center's Spring 2018 brochure!

Classes will run April 9 - May 25.
