Art Classes

ARTitorium on Broadway offers art classes for kids ages 5 and up in a variety of subjects and mediums. Classes generally run for four weeks and begin fresh with the new month. Months may not be included or may have shorter classes due to school breaks.

You will notice that our classes age ranges overlap. If we have a child that seems ready to move on, or is just interested in a different class, we want them to join our classes. We have also put an upper limit of 12 yrs. on our classes. Questions about which class may be right for your child? Give our art teacher a call!

Register online, or call (208) 552-1080.

*Prices are for a full series*


Upcoming Art Classes

Classes are currently taking place in the MC Theater on the second floor of ARTitorium. We ask all parents, caregivers, and siblings to remain downstairs while the class is in operation. You are welcome to drop off your child and leave, or you may wait in the lobby of ARTitorium. Admission to ARTitorium is discounted to $3 per person for student family members while the class is taking place.

If you have special circumstances that would require the presence of an adult during the class, please contact the teacher in advance by emailing artitorium@idahofallsarts.org or calling (208) 552-1080. 
We will make every effort to move the classes back down to the classroom as soon as it is safe to do so.
