EDUCATION & OUTREACH

The Pelham Art Center aims to make art accessible to everyone through a range of programs including art education, affordable art classes, and need-based scholarships. The Pelham Art Center has initiated outreach programs to bring art to under-served communities and reaches over 16,000 people per year through the arts. Programming is available for all ages, from toddlers to seniors. Classes and workshops have included drawing, painting, ceramics, collage, digital design, fashion illustration, book making, writing, floral arranging, printmaking, digital video, and animation.
