Thursdays, 6-7:30pm

$5 per class. Materials included.

ART OPS is off to a great start! Participants have explored drawing and painting in the first month of the program. We have only begun to scratch the surface of all art has to offer. Join The New Castle County Art Studio to explore your unique creative side and experiment with elements of art and design.

Play with a variety of art forms including drawing, painting, ceramics, collage and more! No art experience necessary and no expectations! You only need a desire to express yourself. If you cannot come every week – no problem! Join us when your schedule allows.

Get lost in your process, free up your mind, feel free to make “mistakes” and watch art happen!
