Learning is vital to any successful classroom, but it doesn’t just happen.

Adult Art ClassesOur team of instructors are key in the process, they are building a community of learners. They encourage individuals to improve their skills or make meaningful connections with each other in the classroom. Each creates a respectful environment that is warm, welcoming and non judgemental with a focus on teaching technique, medium or subject matter, not personal aesthetics or a specific artistic style.


I had put down my art interest for more than two years. I needed something to 'kick-start' it again. I took two classes from Art Verve Academy. They were 'Drawing the Human Head' with Christy Olsen and 'Exploring Watercolor Textures' with Stacy Egan. Both of these classes & their instructors were very, very good & just what I needed to 'kick-start' my art activities again. I would strongly recommend these classes & the Art Verve Academy!!!
