Union University Community Art Program

We've added some new techniques to this year's beginning slate of Saturday's Workshops and look forward to a fresh and fun new season of working with students.

Each Saturday session offers students a three-hour period of time in which to study one genre or concept while using several different approaches. Classes are suitable for all experience levels and are held in mixed grade groups. Classes are small in size and enrollment space is limited. Sign up deadline is one week prior to class date.

Class fee of $65.00 includes all materials and a light snack. Saturday sessions are held from 1-4 p.m. (A Saturday morning class can be scheduled if there is group of four students who wish to take at that time. You may call the director to make this request. 731-661-5076.)
