Teen Classes

Teens Enjoy Art Too!

We are here to provide an environment in which teens can challenge themselves to develop and refine their techniques in a friendly and inclusive atmosphere. 

Gallery Scavenger Hunt

While you are here, do our Gallery Scavenger Hunt!

Giving kids an appreciation for art encourages exploration, self expression, logical thinking, self-esteem, imagination, and creativity. We’ve made up a fun little scavenger hunt for your family to do together at the Art Center! Just stop by the front desk anytime for the scavenger hunt. 


We'd love to have you all, but space is limited...so sign up today!

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Your space isn't confirmed until you have completed our online registration through RegFox. It's easy, just follow the link below the class you want.

The Art Center supplies all art materials for each class unless the instructor asks for something special for a specific class.

If you need to cancel your child's registration, let us know at least 48 hours before the actual class date and you'll be refunded the full amount. Class fees are non-refundable for cancellations less than 48 hours before the class date. Thank you for understanding.

Weather Policy

We follow the lead with the Burlington Community School District for cancellations. Please be sure to keep an eye on BCSD notifications regarding school status if we're experiencing questionable weather. If you have questions, please give us a call at 319.754.8069.

BCSD Late start = no morning class
BCSD Early out = no afternoon classes
BCSD No school = no classes at all

Scholarships Available!

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to explore their love of art, regardless of financial means. If your family needs help paying for an art class, please let us know when you sign up.
