The Art Garage is a young thriving nonprofit. Our mission is to provide a variety of educational opportunities including art classes and art-based community activities. We are a non-profit organization who provides a neighborhood community center that brings people together through the Arts. We support cultural, social and educational diversity
The Art Garage offers high-quality art education classes, workshops and summer camps taught by local practicing artists for kids, teens and adults. Students are able to explore creative art materials, learn and demonstrate art techniques and design original artwork. Students learn fundamental art elements, art vocabulary, artistic styles, famous artists and much more!
Our class sizes are small typically from 4-15 students allowing the teacher to work individually with each student. Our maximum class size is 20. If we have more than 15 students in a class we will have two teachers team teaching.
We also have off-site programs at different schools in the area. To find out more about our programs in the schools, click here. We also offer memorable special events for kids, teens and adults focusing around an art project.
We start our classes as young as three years old (they must be fully potty trained) and go all the way through adulthood.
We are excited to announce that we have started the A.R.K (Art Reaching Kids) program which brings art to youth in residential treatment facilities focusing on self-expression and self-confidence in a supportive environment.

This type of community gathering place has been a rarity in East Denver." -Pat Clarke
