The Art Connection: Semester Art Classes

They have potential. They have ideas.
We provide the instruction, the inspiration, and the space to create.

Pittsburgh’s premiere art program for young people in grades 5 to 9. Learn drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, and digital tools, culminating with an exhibition at Carnegie Museum of Art. Active for more than 80 years, this combination of big ideas and practical know-how prepares young people for a world of visual information, problem-solving, and managing complex projects. The 18-week course is split into two 9-week semesters.
