Youth Art Classes

We work with students, age 4-18, to teach them beginner, intermediate, and advanced techniques in painting, drawing, watercolor, pastels, ceramics, and mixed media projects. We provide a fun and nurturing environment where students can experiment, learn, and create and we strive to instill in our students a life-long love of art. Our teachers possess knowledge and insight that make each project unique. All supplies and a pre-packaged snack are included. Classes are offered after school, over the Summer, and on some weekends.

Give the gift of art with private party or giftcard to The Artist Outpos!

We offer week-long camps that explore a broad range of art while others are purely ceramics based!  Our Advanced Camps are for artists aged 12 to 18 and run 9am to 3pm. Our Beginner/Intermediate Camps are for artists aged 5 to 11, and always have a half day option from 9am to Noon. Whatever the camp, our campers bring home a multitude of creative projects!

We are happy to offer a 10% discount to campers attending more than 1 camp!
