Pop-Up Art Classes

We are excited to be able to provide "PopUp" art classes for those who are interested in a two-hour art adventure that requires no experience and nothing to bring!

Gather your friends, invite your relatives or come alone and enjoy an opportunity to try something new or indulge a long-lost hobby with no long-term commitment or investment required.

Snacks and drinks are included as well and all necessary supplies will be provided for your use.

At the end of the two hours you will have a finished piece of art to take home!

$20 fee per person unless otherwise indicted.

Contact the Art Alliance at or call the office at 814-234-2740 to sign up before the class.
