Historic Yellow Springs

Teen & Tween Art and Pottery Classes

Teen/Tween art and pottery classes at Historic Yellow Springs include teen courses in clay, handbuilt pottery, thrown ceramics, drawing, painting, mixed media, animation and more. Most teen class materials and supplies are included in the tuition. The Chester Springs Studio teen art and pottery classes are an excellent way to develop art portfolios and prepare for further advancement in the arts. Teens, sixteen and older, are also welcome to enroll in adult classes (with the exception of Life Drawing, which is eighteen and older). We are COVID compliant and all students who are not vaccinated must wear masks.
