The Downriver Council for the Arts offers classes and workshops available for all levels and ages. These are a great way to further your interests or try something entirely new. The instructors are working artists and teachers from the community who demonstrate outstanding ability in teaching and artistic expression. Many of these are held in the galleries and the exhibitions are sure to inspire. Explore the possibilities!
Meet, mingle and trade inspiration with local knitters, crocheters, spinners, felters, weavers and needleworkers. Bring your own projects and have fun with a like-minded group. Open to teens and adults. All skill levels welcome.
Cost: $3 donation to the DCA. Starting January 30, 2018.
Become an Instructor Our aim is to engage children, teens, and adults in the artistic process, cultivate appreciation of cultural arts, and make cultural arts a vital and integral part of community life. If you are interested in teaching a class, camp, workshop or lecture, please contact the DCA via email or phone. We are open to all expressions and your ideas. Your class can be for any age, adults or children. It can be any time of the day and not necessarily during our 'normal hours' from 9am-5pm. We have many classes and workshops going on in the evenings and weekends. So what are you waiting for... contact us right away!
Summer Camps for Youth Our summer art camps are meant to be fun and to engage children in different aspects of art. There is a hidden talent in all of us, why not help unleash your child’s talent through art? We kick off with an Open House in the late Spring so you can see a sampling of the type of camps we'll be offering in the summer. Then celebrate at the end of the season with a Camp Art Show!
