Teen Workshops

We are now offering a variety of workshops for teens!(5-8th grade). These workshops are more advanced and detailed than our Thursday afterschool classes. Beginners are welcome as we will review entry level techniques and best practices, but we will also be diving deeper to learn intermediate and advanced methods.

Wednesday afterschool classes run from 4pm – 5:30pm. Classes are $15 for SAC members and $20 for guests.

Purchase an annual SAC membership for your child ($20) or the entire family ($50) and receive discounts on classes.
