Mary M. Torggler Fine Arts Center - Studio Classes

closed 1/21 - 1/24 due to inclement weather.

Get creative at the Torggler! We offer new classes for children and adults each season. Classes are held at convenient times throughout the week in brand new, well-appointed studio classrooms. Taught by qualified, experienced artists and art instructors, our classes focus on developing creative skills and self-expression, and range in duration from weekend workshops to eight-week courses.

Winter classes will begin on January 24. Resolve to exercise your creativity in the new year.
