The West Hartford Art League holds year round art instruction for adults and youths in the form of weekly daytime and evening classes Monday - Saturday in the fall, winter and spring, and a daytime camp for youths during the summer. Special weekend and one time workshops are held throughout the year taught by a varied group of instructors. The West Hartford Art League actively seeks to attract qualified persons to join its faculty and staff, and encourages diversity in its student body. The workshops offer all the benefits of our classes in more condensed timeframe. They're a perfect introduction to a new subject, and a great way to refresh an old skill.
