The Art League School
square AL logo RGB SMALL copy offers classes and workshops for all skill levels, in virtually all of the fine arts, to students of all ages. Anyone can take classes at The Art League School. Each year, students fill over 10,000 seats in classes. Novices find a welcoming and supportive environment while more experienced students are challenged to learn new techniques. Professional, highly qualified artist instructors, many from DC-area colleges and universities, teach all of our classes and workshops. Travel workshops are offered domestically and internationally to exciting locales with our talented faculty. And because all courses are noncredit, our focus is on personal artistic enrichment, rather than a degree.
