Art Classes for Children, Teens, Adults & Families
RegistRation Begins FeBRuaRy 26
Studio ScheduleJune 30 august 29, 2014Dates:
The Armorys unique education and exhibition programs encourage children and adults to expe-rience, understand and appreciate contemporary art while being involved in the creative process of art making. Many of our Studio art classes visit the Gallery during the session and artworks in the exhibitions become sources of inspiration when creating art in class. Techniques and ideas used by the exhibiting artists are also learned in some classes.
The Armory is committed to hiring dedicated, professional art-ist/educators with demonstrated sensitivity to and understand-ing of the developmental needs of individuals. It is our goal to provide a nurturing environment in which individuals are given the freedom to express themselves while receiving the neces-sary tools for creative growth.
