Community Art Classes
The Erie Art Museum aims to build community among artists, art students and the public. In order to further encourage the burgeoning art scene in our city, this page will highlight art classes offered in the Erie area. All the featured classes are led by professional artists and/or educators and are open to the public. Students make original artwork and are able to evaluate their experience at the end of the course. If you or your organization would like to be included on the list please email our Education Coordinator Ally Thomas.
