Arts Education
Classes, Private Lessons, and Beyond!


To ensure safety for all, FAA will continue to follow COVID-19 guidelines at the direction of state and local health officials. 

FAA is continuing hybrid arts education instruction for the remainder of spring and for certain classes and private lessons during the summer. Students may choose between in-person or live virtual instruction. All classes are offered in the hybrid format, excluding ceramics classes and theatre classes which are in-person only. MOST SUMMER CAMPS AND CLASSES ARE OFFERED IN PERSON ONLY.

Our arts experiences are inclusive of individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and ability levels. We provide arts education in a family-centered, safe, creative environment where students can experience the arts in their own very personal way.

There are several creative routes to explore at FAA. Whether you are interested in pursuing the arts professionally, for the health benefits, or for fun, FAA has a place for you. Our professional faculty and artistic staff have been consistently lauded. Such talent and passionate dedication to providing arts for all, have enabled us to grow into the nationally recognized cultural center that we are today!
