YAA Institute | Studio Art Classes

The Young At Art Institute is a 7,500 sq. ft. wing of Young At Art Museum featuring the finest art studios for ceramics, digital art & film, darkroom photography, drawing, painting, and printmaking, and mixed media.

The Institute’s curriculum, delivered by professional and visiting guest artists, introduces the elements of art and the principles of design through an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Age-appropriate art-making experiences for children, teens and adults are interwoven with art appreciation, history, culture and critique.
