Arts education programming at the Lawrence Arts Center encourages students of all ages and experience levels to experiment, explore, and deepen understanding of art while making lasting connections with their teachers and each other. Classes fit a variety of schedules, experience levels, and interests, and financial aid is available for those who demonstrate financial need.
We are working hard to make your experience not only fun and creative, but also SAFE!
We are offering limited on-site youth camps, art institutes, and adult visual art classes. All other classes will be held online. Once you enroll in the activity of your choice you will receive confirmation via email. That confirmation will be followed by class-specific instructions including space, equipment or clothing requirements if your activity will be undertaken remotely. If you have additional questions prior to enrolling, or after you have received specific details, PLEASE CALL 785.843.2787 OR EMAIL US WITH QUESTIONS.
