We believe that no matter what your age, background, or life experience, art has a place for you. Sharpen your skills, begin brand new, or just explore. Art not only gives us a sense of community and belonging, but it also fosters compassion, mental acuity, and an overall sense of well-being and accomplishment. You are invited to our studio and gallery space (and the greater Binghamton area for on-site classes) to see where your interests take you. We specialize in watercolor, acrylic, and oil painting, as well as a variety of drawing materials.
Learn medium of your choice in drawing and painting, share instruction time with other teens/adults, 2-6 ppl per class.
4-week sessions, meets weekly
