Spring is a time to go outside: outside the house, outside your phone, outside the box, and outside your comfort zone.

Our favorite way to get there? Art classes, of course!

Spring term at The Art League begins the week of April 4. Our classes aren’t for a degree or a certificate — they’re about learning, growing, and unlocking your creativity. So if this time of year has you feeling like trying something new, we have lots of suggestions for you!
