Youth Classes

Class Guidelines and refund policy

  • All students, instructors, and staff are encouraged to wear a face mask. 
  • We encourage you to dress for mess. To reduce sharing items, Emerge will not be able to provide aprons. We encourage you to pack your own apron or wear clothes you are ok with getting art on.
  • The in-person class size has been reduced to 4-6 depending on classroom size.
  • Emerge asks that if anyone in your household is sick or showing signs of becoming sick, that you do not attend class.

Immerse your young artists in the world of abstraction, using lots of shapes, forms, colors, and lines! Students will be introduced to well known artists, in different abstract mediums, to inspire their own works of art. These mediums will cater towards painting, drawing, sketching, mixed media, but possibly more!
