Please register for classes early to avoid disappointment!
This is very important – most classes have a minimum and maximum class attendance number. Once the maximum number has been reached the class is FULL and no one else can register. If the minimum number is not reached by two business days before the class date, the class will be cancelled.

If you see that a class you were interested in taking has disappeared from the website it is probably full. Feel free to call us at 641-421-3666 for class questions and availability.

Classes are listed by START DATE.

*Please note: CLASS CREDIT REQUESTS will be honored if the request occurs ONE WEEK PRIOR to the first meeting of the class.

If you have signed a child up for a class and then realize he/she is unable to attend, PLEASE let us know right away! Some classes have waiting lists and we want to give everyone a chance to attend.

As of September 1, 2015 we will no longer offer pro-rated pricing for multiple-day classes if you cannot attend every day. Everyone will need to pay the full price. We want to encourage everyone to attend all scheduled class sessions as most projects in these classes take multiple days to complete. Missing classes may result in not being able to participate in scheduled projects as well as unfinished projects. Please call 641-421-3666 with questions

Scholarships Available
Through generous donations from individuals and groups in the community, scholarships are available to students who normally would not be able to experience an art class. For more information or to donate towards a class scholarship, please contact Edith Blanchard at  641-421-3666.
