Slide66In after school art classes, students explore drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, printmaking, fiber arts, and mixed media in a relaxed and open-ended structure. We find inspiration in nature, people, observation, abstraction, imagination and fantasy, and in global art works and traditions from ancient to contemporary times.
We consider artwork by various artists for inspiration and conversation, and for developing different ways of seeing and interpreting the vast world of visual arts. Artists are encouraged to find their own unique creative perspective through their studio experience.

After school art classes include art instruction and space for self-direction and choice. Emphasis is on nurturing creativity and connection with materials and each other.

Health & Safety 

Artists are welcome to bring a snack and water bottle. Artists may enjoy their water or snack independent from other artists in the small library space. The studio is air conditioned in warm months.

Accessible restroom onsite
Regular sanitation of high-touch surfaces
Masks are now optional. Wearing a mask is encouraged for children who were recently under the weather, or have mild residual symptoms. 

Sibling Discount

After the first artist, additional artists from the same family receive a discounted rate of 10%.

Inclement Weather & Absence Policy

We follow the Amherst School District for inclement weather cancellations. In case of a snow day, the after school series will be extended to make up for the cancellation.

Absence policy: One or two classes may roll over to the following class series, or applied as credit to a future Feather Press Studio program. One missed class may be refunded.


We are dedicated to guiding artists towards their creative freedom and self expression, and are committed to access for all. To inquire about scholarships or financial aid, please use our Contact Form.
