Studio Art Classes
at the Young At Art Institute

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. We believe engagement with the arts, exploration with a variety of art mediums, and the sharing of artwork at Museum Showcases, builds self-esteem while providing the freedom to explore the creative process.

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.
