    Hello! I am very interested to join the art classes – to see whether I have any bit of talent in me. Have always been inspired by the grandmasters and how art has changed over the centuries. But I have never received any professional training. Would love to be part of this group to see if I have it in me!

    I have a student who turns 15 in October who is interested in the art class. Although he is not an adult, he is quiet and very well mannered. Would he be able to attend and do you have classes this summer?
    Thank you!

      Hi Lyn,

      We don’t have Free Basic Classes in the summer. Yes, we do accept older teens in classes. We will be posting fall classes in August.
