“Every Artist Was First an Amateur” – R.W. Emerson

Create a conversation piece for your living room. Exercise the right side of your brain. Unwind and relax as you turn your thoughts to something new. Sharpen your skills. 

There are so many great reasons for artists and aspiring artists to register for art classes and workshops. Columbia Association’s Columbia Art Center has a wide range of choices to explore. 

Classes in the more familiar mediums are always available, including ceramics, drawing and painting, jewelry design, and photography. Seasonal classes, guest artist workshops, and special topic workshops change each quarter, offering both CA members and non-members an opportunity to try something new!

Whether you’re rekindling your passion for art or developing your skills even further, Columbia Art Center is the perfect place to bring your creativity to life.
