Thank you for choosing City ArtWorks!




Every summer, City ArtWorks offers 9 weeks of art classes(June 6 to August 12) at our community studio that includes sculpture, clay, printmaking, drawing, painting, mixed media and other visual art mediums. For children ages 3 to 15, summer art classes encourage creative problem solving, help develop critical thinking skills, and expose children to visual arts concepts and history. But most of all, City ArtWorks' Summer Art Classes are fun, and a great way for children to connect with other young artists! Children can sign up for a week, multiple weeks, half day or full day options.
