Learn a new skill, refresh your perspective, and imagine the world more creatively! A few studio artists of the Alton Mill are now offering virtual classes & workshops in a variety of mediums and themes, for beginners to advanced artists of all ages. 

Normally, many of our artists and tenants offer in-person classes and workshops to the public in a variety of mediums. Because current COVID-19 restrictions don't allow in-person classes, we sadly are unable to offer many of our regular classes for the time being.
