Saturday School classes for middle school students

Young artists who attend Saturday School are immersed in what they love most. They are focused and determined, and tell us they want to “become better artists.”

Studio and design classes for middle school artists introduce techniques to expand their existing skills and develop their abilities to imagine, plan, make, build, and complete individual projects. Saturday School lessons introduce new ways of thinking and making that give young artists the tools they need to bring their ideas to life.
