Join us for our third year of Arts Academy, an exciting comprehensive arts program for children ages 8-15 that will take your child’s education to the next level, and open up a whole new world of cultural adventure!

With a decreased emphasis on arts in schools, Bottle Works is taking the lead in offering a program that will foster a love of the arts through fun exploration of a variety of topics, skills and activities.

Your child will go on an artistic journey, discovering ideas, talents and career opportunities in fine arts and overall creativity. Students will learn how to engage in Mindful practices that they can put to positive use in many aspects of life.

Each week, students will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with arts professionals from a variety of different fields and backgrounds. Imagine the possibilities!

At the end of the Nine-Week Session, every Arts Academy Student will receive a “Master of Arts” Certificate in a Graduation Ceremony and be an exhibitor in an Art Gallery Showcase. 

Students can enroll in all 9 weeks of the Academy or choose a 3 week segment specializing in drawing, painting and/or folk arts!

Each Three- week class segment: $100 nonmembers and $95 for BW Members
