Hyde Park Art Center's Education programs are designed to strengthen skills, grow artists, and cultivate sense of community.
Hyde Park Art Center offers on-site and in-school education programs for all ages, allowing any student or family to engage in life-long learning. A typical day of on-site learning at Hyde Park Art Center sees children painting, teenagers taking photographs, and curious adults exchanging ideas with teaching artists and visiting arts professionals. The end result is a vibrant community filled with youth and adult artists, dedicated teaching artists, and passionate arts enthusiasts.
Students at Hyde Park Art Center can expect to have fun working with real artists while learning and growing as people. If you take one of our programs you will get small teacher to student ratio, meaning you will have more attention given to your work and progress. Our teaching artists do more than just address skills, they also get students to think beyond the act of making art. What do you want to say with your art? How can you best communicate your ideas? What kind of impact should you aim for? By answering larger questions such as these, our students consider what art can say, how it helps build community, and what it means to larger conversations beyond the Art Center.
