Art Classes for Youth & Teens

Classes and workshops for youth and teens are offered year-round at Guilford Art Center. We offer in-person instruction on campus, utilizing our freshly renovated classrooms, pottery studio and metals studio. Our professional instructors have years of experience in guiding young artists as they learn to express their creativity and artistic abilities.

During the fall, winter and spring semesters, we offer kids art classes and art workshops for youth ages 5 and older. Class offerings change every semester, but generally include ceramics, drawing, cartooning, mixed media, up cycling, painting, sculpture and more.

Tween and teen art classes include a variety of types of classes and workshops, including blacksmithing, ceramics and stained glass. Offerings vary by semester.

We also offer art classes for homeschoolers that can be based on student’s interests and explore drawing, painting, composition and a variety of techniques of application.


Summer is the perfect time for kids to experience the joy of art! GAC’s annual summer art camp experiences are geared towards developing your child’s creative expression, artistic skills and social interaction through hands-on activities. These week-long sessions are open to children ages 5 –12 years with morning and afternoon sessions available. Weekly programs are built around popular themes and craft techniques. Our professional instructors are experienced in teaching children in a caring way, sharing their knowledge of painting, drawing, sewing, sculpture, pottery, cartooning, and so much more. Weeklong sessions in 2023 run from June 19-August 18. There are also classes for teens, including stained glass making (ages 12+) and blacksmithing (ages 13+).
