Children in our community are one of our biggest priorities at the Shiawassee Arts Center (SAC). We offer a variety of classes and workshops for grade school students after school, homeschoolers, scouts, church groups, and 4-H Clubs. Classes can be arranged to earn badges or just for the students’ enjoyment and artistic enrichment.

Our simple, hands-on multi-media classes vary from painting and drawing to mosaics and pottery. Purchase an annual SAC membership for your child ($20) or the entire family ($50) and receive discounts on classes. If you would like to arrange a class for your group, please contact us.

Thursday after-school classes run from 4pm – 5:30pm.

Check out our upcoming youth classes below.
