Let Us Know Your Thoughts!

As we begin planning for new studio classes, we invite you to take a few moments to share your thoughts and interests with us in our Class and Workshop Survey. Your feedback is an invaluable resource for us to improve existing offerings and to create new programming. We appreciate your time and thank you in advance for your response!

The Springfield Art Museum offers a variety of classes for children and adults, including drawing, painting and pottery. Classes run for 4-8 weeks and are typically offered in the fall, winter, and spring.
