Hyde Park Art Center has a new course registration system! In the long run, this will make signing up for classes easier, and will help us keep in touch with you about program updates, new classes, and more. You'll have to set up a new account, but after that it should be easy.

Thank you for your patience while we learn this new system! If you have any questions, or notice any glitches, please let us know. We're here to help!
Courses are offered in 7 different studios, each designed to accommodate group learning and individual studio practice.
The Oakman Clinton School and Studios house Hyde Park Art Center studio art classes. The Art Center offers over 200 courses per year, allowing any artist to find the right individual course, series, or art learning experiences that best fit their needs. The Oakman Clinton School and Studios has seven different work areas, each one ready for groups of students or individual project work.
The Sagan-Hill Classroom is our largest studio, and houses our Ceramics programs. With roughly 1,500 square feet to work with, there is enough room for clay, tools, storage, potter's wheels, glazes, five kilns...and students!
The Perlow Multimedia Studios are a set of rooms designed for painting, drawing, screenprinting, printmaking, and other mixed-media art-making. There are four different rooms as part of the Perlow studios and each accommodates different sets of art-making.
The Thurow Digital Art Lab features a line of Apple computers, printers, and scanners. The technology allows students to explore digital art areas such as photography, video, sound, and animation.
The Art Center's photo darkroom is one the few remaining of its kind. In the darkroom, artists and students learn about film processing, developing, and printing.
Many of our studios, such as our Painting & Drawing Studio and our Ceramics Studios, also allow for storage of art, enabling students to leave work between class sessions and make it easier to work outside of class time, when artists take advantage of "open studio" access.
