Sign up for in-studio art classes this winter with Krasl Art Center!

Learn a new art form, enhance your resiliency skills, or create a date night with an art class at Krasl Art Center. KAC, located at 707 Lake Boulevard in St. Joseph, features seven indoor studios designed for drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, and woodworking/sculpture. Classes are available for students ages 5 and up. Winter 2022 classes begin January 24 and run through mid-March (Mid April for youth classes). Registration is open through January 17*. Sign up early before all spots are filled!

 

Because every student has individual needs, interests, skills, and learning styles, programs are designed to be adaptable and responsive to situations and provide opportunities for self-expression and storytelling. Students are encouraged to explore new ideas and develop their personal style.

 

*All courses are in-person with limited studio capacity. Enrolled students will receive COVID policy updates before the session begins. Krasl Art Center will follow current health guidelines in January — masks are currently required in KAC studios for all participants. KAC has a vaccination policy in place for all staff and facility, available at krasl.org/visit/faqs.

ADULT/TEEN CLASSES

The creative process is messy and unpredictable, and that’s what KAC’s teaching artists love about it! Instead of providing a step-by-step formula that leads to a predetermined outcome, instructors provide guidance and structured exploration through the elements and principles of art. Meeting January 27 – March 17, these 4- and 8-week Adult/Teen courses connect students in and beyond the classroom by engaging with art history and contemporary topics. Enrolled students will have the opportunity to sign up for 4-week extension classes running March 21 – April 21, 2022. There are no classes April 4 – 8. Class code, title, cost, dates, and instructor are included below — learn more about classes and scholarship opportunities at krasl.org/education/adult/classes/
