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.

The ages for our classes have changed! You will notice that our classes age ranges now 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!
