Find the perfect class to pass the winter in our Winter 2014 Studio Art School catalog.

We also offer afterschool and summer clay camps for children. We have something for every age, skill level and interest. Classes are a great way to tap into your talents, broaden your horizons, make new friends, and support PFAC — Art Is What You Make It!
Our winter session will feature classes for both kids and adults inspired by our upcoming exhibition, "Masterpieces of American Impressionism," which opens Jan. 25. Class registrations begin Dec. 10 for members and Dec. 17 for the public.
