Regular Drop-In Classes
The MAC offers regular, drop-in, focused studio time, with casual attendance commitments. These classes are perfect for a one-night fix or easing into a regular new hobby. These classes include time in our studios, use of our tools and equipment, access to materials (generally for an additional fee), and limited instruction from an experienced artist.
Advanced registration/payment is not required for these classes. You can always pay in person upon arrival at a drop-in class. You are, however, welcome to pay in advance for a drop-in class if you like.

If you want to explore your creativity on your own in a welcoming place with like-minded folk, you can rent out work space in our studios for a couple of hours or sign up for a monthly membership.
You can bring your own supplies, or use the materials and tools in our general crafting area at no additional charge. Other materials outside the crafting area (like paints, clay, glazes, etc.) may be purchased seperately at the discretion of our staff, and access to studio equipment (like the clay slab-roller, potter's wheel, darkroom equipment, etc.) is negotiable depending on availability and experience level.
Available times vary depending on classes and events, but you can contact us to set set up a time to come in, or you are welcome to just stop by during regular hours and see if we have space at that moment.
Come get your hands dirty playing in the mud! Our drop-in clay studio meets every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:00.
Participants will work on their own utilizing the equipment and tools in our clay studio. An experienced potter will be available throughout class to answer questions and provide instruction as needed.
This activity is designed for people who have some experience working with clay. If you are still a beginner, you may want to consider one of our multi-week beginners' courses.
Additional fees apply for materials. You can purchase twenty-five pounds of commercial, low-fire, earthenware clay here.
Young In heArt is a daytime group for adults who feel a need for connection and art. This drop-in class meets the second Wednesday of every month from noon-2pm.
