Events > Educational Workshops > Children

Young people from pre-schoolers to teens enjoy creative arts at ACYC. The Creative Workshops offer classes in color, painting, drawing, clay, theater arts and many other media. Workshops are diverse and fun. Children and teens are naturally creative, so come and let the creativity fly.

You don't have to be experienced or super talented to enjoy being creative. Art is Fun!  Come join a workshop and explore your gifts while learning different ways to enjoy the world around you.

ACYC youth instructors are all highly qualified artists and most are also experienced teachers. Many of our adult classes are open to teens with the instructor's permission.
