Learn and Create with the Yard School of Art

 

The Yard School of Art is part of MAM's Vance Wall Art Education Center, offering classes, camps, and workshops for kids, teens, and adults.

Our studio art classes and workshops offer those of all ages and abilities an opportunity to build artistic skills and explore creative ideas. Small class sizes ensure individual direction from our teaching artists in a community of people who are as enthusiastic about learning and creating as you are.

See the Yard School Policies and Procedures for complete health and safety information.
