ADULT ART CLASSES

The Vita Arts Center offers studio classes in a wide range of visual arts. Whether you are a novice or professional the Vita Art Center has a class just right for you. Be sure to register early, as classes fill. Advance registration is strongly encouraged to secure a spot. You may mail your registration form in or register online, but your space in a class cannot be confirmed until payment is received or payment arrangements are made with the office.

The Vita Art Center has created an adult scholarship program based on financial need. Each class has a limited number of partial tuition scholarships that are given to qualifying students. Scholarship will not exceed 50% of the total tuition. Interested parties need to fill out an application and return it to the Art Center before the program╣s start date. Spaces are limited, so we encourage early submission of scholarship applications.
