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.
In an effort to maintain a healthy class environment, class sizes are limited, masks must be worn at all times indoors, and distancing and sanitation efforts will be made.
If your child is sick or showing any symptoms of sickness on the day of a class, please call ahead to let us know and a a class credit will be awarded.
Children who participate in the classes September 10th – October 15th will have the unique opportunity to exhibit their work here at the Shiawassee Arts Center in January 2021!
