About the Visual Arts Department:
According to research, we learn most efficiently through visual cues. At the Yocum Institute, we believe that visual literacy is essential and we strive to improve our student’s ability in a safe and encouraging environment. Our classes and instructors provide the means to improve observation skills, become fearless problem solvers, stretch the imagination, and master skills in the student’s preferred medium.
Our exciting, innovative, and challenging art classes are led by working artists who ask that their students think creatively, develop problem solving skills, and express themselves fully. Art classes for all ages run from 4 day workshops to 10 week courses.
Private and semi-private lessons in all media are also available. Private rates are $46 per hour and $23 per half hour. Semi-private instruction is available at $15/student (30 mins). Contact Phyllis Moser, Director of Visual Arts, to inquire about these programs. Please note that class material fees may be an additional cost.
Please note: Because the Yocum Institute provides materials and specialized tools for its Visual Arts classes, we recommend that students enroll 48 hours in advance of the first class.
