Draw / Paint Drop-in Sessions

Join us for an informal open studio at the Art Center every Sunday. Bring your own supplies or use what we have to get started. Beginners can get help and advice, and experienced artists can discuss and critique their work. Free for LAC members, and $10 for non-members.

Kid's Ceramics

Every Wednesday from 1:30 – 2:30 we are conducting supervised sessions for kid’s to learn the basics of working with clay. Minimum age is 5. These drop-in sessions are $5. After 2 sessions, they are free to LAC members. Family memberships are only $60 / year and include a total of 4 family members. Additional members can be added for $15 each.

Mommy & Me

These are arts and crafts sessions  for Mommies (Parents or Guardians) with toddlers and pre Kindergarteners (approx. ages 1.5 to 4 yrs). Parent and child will explore a variety of art materials and mediums. This creative experience allows child and parent to work on manipulative skills, communication, relationship bonding, foundations in art and creative expression. The process and experience is more important than the end product.
Classes at the Art Center are currently on Mondays, 10:00 am to 11:00 am.
Call to ask about exceptions (as arranged for holidays, etc)
Non-Scholarship students are $5.00 per session. Available to everyone through LAC Scholarship Program, by enrolling and completing a scholarship essay, your class fee will be $2.00 a session. Parent/child do no have to attend consecutive weeks and may choose any Monday to attend when classes are in session. Child must come with an adult.

Enroll now at the Lanai Art Center Gallery or at any Monday class.
Class size is limited by space available.

UPDATE – Sorry, but no Mommy & Me sessions will be held during the summer school break. Please check back for next start up dates.
