First-time students and advanced studio artists will find new mediums and techniques to explore and inspiring instructors in KAC’s focused workshops. Try your hand at everything from ceramics to collage, painting to poetry, and drawing to digital arts. Get the whole family in on the action with our parent & child workshops!

We make it easy to find the right workshop for your schedule and budget. We offer everything from short single afternoon sessions to in-depth three-day workshops. Brush up on the basics or focus in on a specific technique.

Our introductory workshops are great for beginners who want to try something new without a big time commitment. More experienced artists will find a rotating selection of featured workshops and intensives from visiting artists and returning favorites.

Art & Wine

These sampler workshops are fun for art enthusiasts at all experience levels but are ideal for beginners looking for a relaxed way to try out a new art medium. Paint and sip with acrylic or watercolor, experiment with printmaking, or sculpt and throw with clay. Step-by-step instructions from one of KAC’s premier teachers make it easy to learn the basics. Art & wine is for students ages 21+ only.

Light snacks, a selection of wine and non-alcoholic drinks, and all supplies are included – all you have to bring is yourself! Bring a friend and make it a unique date night or girls’ night out. Referral discounts are available.

Have a group of four or more? Schedule a private art & wine party.
