Adult Classes

MMofA adult classes are taught by professional artists in a variety of different mediums. Learn a new skill or hone your existing talent. From pottery, to painting and drawing, printmaking, glass fusing, and even alternative art forms like puppet-making and shell engraving, The Museum School encourages creative expression through anything we can get our hands on. No experience is required. All workshops are suitable for ages 15 and up, unless otherwise stated.

We are always looking to add a new art form to the mix! If you are a professional artist and would like to teach a workshop here, check out the Teaching Artist Project>>
