Looking for something fun to do this summer?   Join us for Art Adventures!

Make art and have fun in a safe, hands-on learning environment.

Classes are taught by Eastern Michigan University’s senior Visual Art Education majors and supervised by Professor Beth Ament and Teaching Assistant Nicole-Pelc Church.

Students draw, paint, create sculptures, talk about art, tour the Riverside Arts Center Gallery, and make great memories.   All new projects! Sign up for one or more sessions.  Dress to get messy! —————————————————————————————————————–

Class Location
Classes will take place in the Riverside Off Center (former Detroit Edison Building), 64 N. Huron St., Ypsilanti.  Free parking is available in the lot just north of the Riverside Arts Center at 76 N. Huron St. Occasionally, we will walk around the neighborhood and to the Riverside Arts Center gallery next door.

Class Attire
Many of the materials used in class are permanent and cannot be washed out.  Students are advised to dress for mess, so it’s a good idea to wear old clothing.

Registration via Check and Mail
Class fees are $15 per session per student, which includes all materials.  You may sign up your child for more than one session.  No refunds will be given for missed classes.  Pre-registration is required.  Please use the registration form.
