Arts & Jewelry

From crafts like jewelry making to watercolor painting and drawing, our art and jewelry classes focus on the skills needed to turn hobbies into art that can be shared with others. Course offerings vary by semester, but range from crafts to photography and drawing.

Our arts and jewelry classes generally meet once weekly over the course of a few weeks, so there is sufficient time to master each new technique. Unless otherwise noted, classes are open to participants of any skill level.
