Grow, Learn, Thrive

At Art Gym we encourage everyone to grow, learn, and thrive as an artist. To help build your skills, we collaborate with like-minded organizations and guest teachers who deliver hands-on workshops that are open to the public. With a different focus each session, you have the chance to learn something new or improve your techniques. But not only can you take workshops, you can lead them too, offering your expertise to fellow artists. Join a class and grow, learn, thrive!
