Our education programs amplify our skills, grow us as artists, and cultivate our community of creative citizens.
Art for Everyone! In Open Arts there’s no minimum required tuition to participate. We ask that students and families contribute as generously as they can.
Classes & Workshops
Try something new or deepen your knowledge with a class or workshop in ceramics, painting and drawing, textiles, mosaics, digital and darkroom photography, and creative development. Courses take place in the Oakman Clinton Schools and Studios which accommodate groups and individual studio practices.
The Oakman Clinton School and Studios at Hyde Park Art Center are comprised of a ceramics studio, printmaking studio, digital media lab, darkroom, and several mixed media studios. With more than 200 courses across the visual arts, our seven studios serve nearly 2,000 students annually.
The Art Center’s classes are taught by professional artists, providing a contemporary learning environment that encourages individual and creative growth. Our Teaching Artists love sharing the practices and methods used in their professional work, guiding students through the process of discovery, and amplifying their skills along the way.
