Creativity Launch Pad Classes

A great way for beginner artists to get started!

Launch Pad classes are for ANY and ALL skill levels seeking a fun, relaxed and creative environment in which to learn something new or work on your own. They offer an opportunity to experience different mediums as an introduction, that could provide a gateway to independent making.

All materials are provided.

Mindfulness classes are perfect for clearing your creative roadblocks and finding your artistic voice.

  • For Beginners - a great way to test the medium and see what you like.
  • For Intermediates - great for constructive critique.
  • For Advanced students - work at your own pace.
Classes meet on the first Tuesday of every month, 5:30-7:00 in the AMoA classroom.
