Frequently Asked Questions:

No, you do not need to be an artist. Many of our students are beginners with little or no experience. The class description will specify the level of difficulty or if any previous experience is needed.
If your class meets before 5pm on a weekday, park on the street and feed the meter. There are several metered parking spaces on 5th Street and State Street. (Fifth Street meters allow you up to eight hours.) Erie Insurance has graciously allowed us to park in their lot across from the Museum at 5th and French Street after 5PM and on weekends.
