Fairmount Center - Art

The Fairmount Center believes there’s an artist in everyone just waiting to emerge.

At the Fairmount Center, art programs offer studio-based classes for toddlers through adults in a supportive setting. Learn ceramics, painting, try your hand at sewing, or discover the art of watercolor! Gain skills drawing with pencil, or develop your techniques in painting in watercolor or acrylic.

It’s never too late to learn a new skill, OR let yourself indulge in your creative passions!
