Youth and Teen Art Education Classes & Workshops

Please check the website for any necessary materials for each class, as well as additional info. New classes and sessions are frequently added, so check back regularly.

We require a minimum number of students to hold a class so please enroll (preferably with a friend!) ASAP. Payment-in-full must be received one week prior to first day of class. A written request one week prior to start of class is required for cancellation (15% fee will be retained by RAM). No full or prorated refunds will be issued. No exceptions. For youth and teen classes, a parent or guardian must sign the student in and out daily; please give us your phone number when enrolling in case we need to cancel/postpone a class or in case of emergency.

NOTE regarding home school programs: If you sign up for any class with the expectation that your home school program or charter school will pay for the class and your home school program or charter school will not pay, you will be held liable for full payment unless a written request one week prior to start of class is submitted to cancel your registration (you will still be charged and held liable for a 15% fee). If you do not cancel or do not show up for your class, you will be charged and held liable for full payment.

Scholarships are available through the Evie Littleworth Scholarship Fund, the Dottie Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund, the Homespun Players Scholarship Fund, and the Art Alliance.
