First-Time Artist

 

You can always find a place to start at Lillstreet. Don't know the first thing about a medium or art in general? We welcome you to our First-Time Artist program. We all start somewhere, sometime, and these classes will help you master the basics. These four-or five-week introductory courses allow students with no previous experience to explore different media with other first-time artists. Learn new techniques in a no-pressure, supportive environment. Please note that these classes are open to beginners only and there is a limit of 2 sessions per student.
