Classes

Classes at Geralyn’s Art Studio are designed to focus on individual pieces rather than class projects. This means less competition between students and more room for fun and creativity! For every six students, each class has one instructor. All art supplies are provided, unless you’d like to work on canvas, in which case, you’re welcome to bring your own!

The Winter 2017 session runs from Monday, January 16 to Saturday, April 17 and costs $325. Late registration classes will be prorated. Registration is also available for Spring 2017, which begins April 27 and finishes up on June 24 and is $225. Check out our schedule and course descriptions below!

Please note: We cannot offer refunds or makeup classes.
