Learn something new and explore your creativity in Arts Benicia’s Educational Program.
Classes & Workshops for Adults
The mission of Arts Benicia’s Adult Education Program is to provide a learning environment for the exchange of ideas and information and to inspire the community to develop its creative potential. Our community is very fortunate in having many professional studio artists who are also gifted teachers, and who have provided highly skilled instruction over the years in a caring, attentive classroom environment.
Classes are scheduled from January-June and July-December. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Youth Classes & Opportunities
Arts Benicia is committed to providing hands-on children’s art programs through the Next Generation student exhibition, Family Art Days, Art Exploration, EcoArt Summer Day Camp, and Arts Benicia After School art classes. For more information call 707.747.0131 or email Arts Benicia at email@example.com
Arts Benicia children’s art classes are funded by grants from the Benicia Community Sustainability Commission, the Union Pacific Foundation, and the Wilson Family Foundation.
Classes & Opportunities for Teens
Arts Benicia’s new Teen Art Program (TAP) has three key goals: 1) art making and skill development, 2) apprenticeships with professional artists, and 3) mentoring and community service.
The TAP will encourage artistic exploration and development of technical skills in a variety of traditional and non-traditional 2-D and 3-D media through workshops taught by professional artists. To further develop artistic skills we will encourage and facilitate teen apprenticeship opportunities with professional artists.
The mentoring component of the TAP will involve training teens as gallery docents, art workshop leaders for Family Art Days, and for off-site community art projects. The TAP is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, as well as by Valero.
