Our programs are made possible through the support of the Oregon Community Foundation and others.
Our Youth classes are offered to kids up to 12 years old. If you’re over the age of 12, don’t worry! Classes for teens are FREE through our Art Rocks Teens program. Members of the Pendleton Center for the Arts pay a reduced fee for classes. Join now here!

Kids of all ages now have full access to the PCA’s art materials and studio space! Inspire your kids to explore art independently through open-ended drawing, painting, and collage or try out a new technique by working along with the group on a facilitated project (we’ll have a fun optional project going on each time). The emphasis is on creative learning and play through art making. Kids are welcome to drop in for 15 minutes or stay for the full session if they would like. Parents can participate too!

CLAY CREATIONS STUDIO
with Kate Peck
1st & 3rd Saturday every month
Beginning in April 2020
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM POSTPONED – CHECK BACK SOON
Our Youth Clay Creations will be held the first and third Saturdays of each month, unless it lands on a holiday. Drop in between 10:30 AM and Noon to explore clay building open studio style. That means we’ll be there each time helping with building ideas such as pinch pots, slab constructed boxes, free-form clay sculptures and so much more! Students will then have the flexibility of creating on their own timeline and glaze as pieces have been bisque fired. We do get messy so make sure to send your student in suitable clothes. We still appreciate registering early so we can always make sure we have enough clay.
