Art Classes

Discover your inner artist at Darlington
We offer classes and workshops in drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, mixed media, cartooning, jewelry making & more. Learn the skills of an artist and create beautiful pieces to take home! Our small class sizes allow for our friendly, experienced teaching artists to devote individual attention to each student. Classes and workshops are designed for children and adults of all ages and skill levels - beginners welcome!

Browse our classes and see what we have this semester. Classes that are held in "Sessions" do not require enrollment in both. Attend Session 1 or Session 2 (or both!) - whatever is most convenient for you. Projects will be unique each time.
