Classes & Workshops
Youth Art Classes
Designed to give children and teens the skills, encouragement and environment they need to explore and develop their natural creativity with an emphasis on developing fine arts skills and having fun.
Youth Art Camps
Art camps are different from ongoing youth art classes in that the camps are for a limited time, usually scheduled to coincide with the school winter breaks, spring breaks and summer breaks. Some camps are taught by Cloud 9 instructors and other camps are taught by visiting instructors.
We are happy to offer options to homeschool families and organizations to have art classes during times that suit your homeschool schedules. Just contact us at email@example.com to discuss options.
Some instructors are available for private lessons offered in our classrooms specifically designed for one-on-one lessons and for small groups (such as families). Contact individual instructors to discuss availability and pricing.
Art classes for adults
We offer art classes for adults in drawing, watercolors, acrylics, and sketch booking. Students sign up month to month. Classes run September through June although students can start up at any time. We know life gets busy. You are free to stop taking classes and start up again as your schedule allows.
Art Workshops for adults
Art workshops are different from ongoing classes in that the workshops are for a limited time. Some workshops are just for a day, and some meet weekly for a few months. Some workshops are taught by Cloud 9 instructors and other workshops are taught by visiting instructors.
