Arts Visalia Education

Children’s Classes

Quality Art Education

Our goal is to provide quality art education, combining hands-on projects with art history instruction.  Our classes promise a fun introduction to the basic elements of art, with an emphasis on imagination and creative problem solving.  We have courses in drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, and mixed-media.

Fall, Spring & Summer Sessions

We offer Fall, Spring, and Summer sessions.  During the Fall and Spring months, classes are held after school and on Saturdays. There is a variety of 2- to 4-week courses from which to choose, with new courses beginning each month. The summer session, during the months of June and July, consists of new week-long courses beginning each week.  Participants in our summer session are encouraged to display their masterpieces in our annual Young at Art Exhibition in August.

Young At Art Exhibition

The hard work of the summer art classes culminates in our annual Young at Art exhibition, where we will feature artworks by each and every student who participates in the summer program. Held annually in August, the Young at Art exhibit is always the most joy-filled exhibit of the year as students, along with their families and friends, have the opportunity to see their artistic creations presented in the professional gallery setting.
