As the old adage goes, “practice makes perfect.” Or close to it, at least. Try your hand at something new this spring or hone an old skill at any one of these art class hubs throughout the county.



ART WORKS DOWNTOWN

Located on San Rafael’s liveliest thoroughfare, this 40,000-square-foot Fourth Street behemoth is a truly comprehensive art space. Featuring four galleries, art studios, a frame shop, a restaurant and more, Art Works Downtown showcases new exhibits, events and classes every month. artworksdowntown.org

MARIN MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

The classes at MarinMOCA cover drawing, sculpture and painting as well as ceramics, mixed media workshops and abstract sewing, among others. Located at Hamilton Field in Novato, the museum is free-admission, and many classes are almost as affordable. marinmoca.org

MASTERWORKS KIDS ART STUDIO

For nearly 20 years, this Corte Madera studio has been educating young artists with a multipronged approach. Led by Lisa Jones, a professional illustrator and fine art painter, the classes involve both standard art and a cultural context element. masterworkskidsart.com

Started by Ann and Richard O’Hanlon in 1969, O’Hanlon Center for the Arts in Mill Valley was known as Sight & Insight Art Center until 2004. Programs cover visual, literary and performing arts, meditation, classes for the family and wabi-sabi. ohanloncenter.org

STUDIO 4 ART

With holidaythemed family workshops like ceramic platter making, locations in Mill Valley and Novato, and many classes offered off-site, Studio 4 Art covers a lot of the county.
