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. Classes are $10 for SAC members and $12 for guests!

Check out our upcoming youth classes below.

February 17 & 24- Two Week Batik (Children need to be able to attend both sessions)

Batik is a form of textile design, traditionally involving a hot wax-resist and dying technique.  The Batik originated in Java, the most populated island in Indonesia. We will be brushing and stamping with melted wax on white, cotton fabric, then painting with fabric dyes to create original designs or pictures.
