Since the beginning, McGuffey has held art classes in the building, touching on every media from metalsmithing, life drawing, dance, ceramic, and improv to glassblowing, painting, drumming, and mixed media. Now serving over 1500 students annually, in over 50 classes, McGuffey is the place to play, explore a new medium, or hone your craft in focused learning by practicing artists.

Each teacher is responsible for organizing their own classes and processing tuition payments. If you have any questions about classes, please contact the instructor directly. In many cases you can register via a teacher’s personal website (if this option is possible, a direct link will be provided).
