Program Options

When it comes to finding local art classes, prospective students should first decide upon a discipline and level of interest. Art classes may be part of a degree or a certificate program at a local art school or offered as personal enrichment classes.

Leisure and personal enrichment art classes are often found at local community centers, community colleges and other locations. Some local art instructors may offer classes at their own homes. Established community art centers and galleries may have their own websites, which are often easily found through Google.

How Can I Learn about Local Classes?

Google

Most art classes can be found through a simple Google search. By typing 'art classes' into a Google search box, students will find local results based upon their IP addresses, which the search engine displays on a Google Map. These results may include colleges, universities and local art centers. Students can also include a specific city or town as part of their search terms.

National Center for Education Statistics

In addition to Google, students can use the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to search for art schools in their area. At the center's website, students may use the Program/Major and zip code selectors to search for nearby visual and performing arts programs. The NCES will then bring up a list of schools that fit their criteria. Students should be aware in advance that while this method will allow them to find art classes offered by public and private colleges and universities, art schools and technical centers, it may not include all of the available options.
