Private Art Lessons

Our talented faculty also offer private lessons for children ages 8 and up in drawing and painting, ceramics, and in acting and voice coaching. Lessons are scheduled according to teacher and student availability in blocks of four one-hour lessons at a time. Private lessons for one student start at $65 per hour. Semi-private lessons are $60 per student for two students, or $50 per student for three to four students. For groups of five or more students, we will organize a private group class! Please use this contact form to ask about private lessons today.
