Thought About Taking an Art Class, But Don’t Know Where to Start?

We hear many people say that they are interested in trying an art class. They want to start a new hobby, see if that childhood interest in art is still there, meet new people, or uncover their creative side….

But, they find signing up for a class to be daunting. Or maybe you don’t know what the right class would be for you? Or, you don’t know the difference between acrylic and oil? Or maybe you’re afraid you don’t know how to hold a pencil correctly?

We’re demystifying the process!

Join us for an Art League School prospective student information session. You will be able to:
  • Meet our instructors.
  • Learn about art supplies and how to buy them
  • Ask school staff about classes and teachers, and pick a class that’s right for you.
  • Talk with current students about how they selected their classes and hear about their experiences.

Join us Saturday, November 6, 2:00 – 3:30 pm
Meet in The Art League Gallery (located on the first floor of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, room #21)

This event is FREE! To register and reserve your spot, email: develop@theartleague.org
