Exceptional Art Classes for Uncommon Kids Age 3-11

This isn't your ordinary art school. At the Armory, kids explore ideas and materials to challenge imaginations, encourage critical thinking, and inspire playful invention. Our teachers are seasoned educators and practicing artists. All have Master's degrees from the nation's top art schools and some even teach at the college level. The Armory's roots go back to 1947, and we've been a national leader in artist-driven education ever since. Even First Lady Michelle Obama is a big fan.

This Summer, your 3-to-11-year-olds have nine, week-long sessions to choose from. Take up to 4 classes per day, or just one. Come for one week or the whole summer, it's your choice. All week-long sessions for 3-11-year-olds are enrolling throughout the summer, but Week 1 starts June 27th... so register today! Classes for teens and adults are enrolling now, too.
