Class Catalog

Friends are Free!

In honor of our 80th anniversary, this winter session the Art Center would like to extend an invitation to your favorite friend to join you in art making for free!

Choose from our list of available classes and your friend can attend for free! Sign up today or if you're already signed up for one of the classes on the list, bring your friend on the first day! We'll have your friend fill out a registration card that will allow them to attend this class free of charge all quarter. Materials and modeling fees will still apply and if a materials list has been provided online, please have your friend bring materials and supplies with them to their first day of class.

We are excited to meet your friends, and we hope they will enjoy making something new as much as we do.

Quick reminder, friends are not allowed in classes that are already full or in classes that require advanced knowledge or where the instructor needs to purchase supplies in advance. Questions? Call us at 510-620-6772 or email us at
