Spring Class Schedule

We offer a variety of courses for high school students and adults in a wonderful art school setting that provides a supportive community for beginning and practicing artists at all levels.  We currently offer classes in fine arts such as drawing, painting and collage; graphic design and web page design courses; art history seminars for lifelong learners; and portfolio development courses during the summer for high school students.

Classes are currently available to adults and students age 16 years and higher. Students 17 and under must submit an Emergency Contact Form when they register.

For a listing of current classes, please see our Fall 2014 schedule. You can register for classes online, by phone at 240-567-5188, or by mail or fax.

State of the Art Facility 

We are located in The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center on the MC Takoma Park/Silver Spring West Campus. Once the Giant Bakery, the building was reconfigured into an innovative educational facility for the visual arts and design. Our facilities house an art gallery, art library, lecture hall, fine arts and digital design classrooms, and an art store.
