Spring 2020 Classes


The Barnsdall Art Center (BAC), a program for adults, has been providing college level arts instruction at low cost for over 50+ years. This program of extremely popular classes in the visual and performing arts is presented by a select staff of instructors drawn from the art departments of prestigious colleges and universities, art schools, and other prestigious and exemplary institutions. Many of the instructors are working professionals whose work is exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.

Drawing, painting, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, photography and more are the primary disciplines offered. Workshops in various art forms provide additional richness, and the uninstructed life-drawing workshops provide independent work from the model to advanced students and professional artists. The BAC has earned its reputation for challenging instruction in small informal classes and the atmosphere of a community of artists.
