A NOTE ABOUT OUR SCHEDULING:

Most of our classes are offered in 4 week sessions to allow for an easier payment plan. For a beginner, the first four weeks are a very basic introduction to the medium, for others it may be a review. As with acquiring any new skill, we highly recommend a commitment to several sessions in order to become proficient and/or produce a rewarding piece of work.

PRE-REGISTRATION and payment for all classes is required. A class may be cancelled due to low enrollment. You will be notified up to 2 days in advance and refunds will be given. No refund will be given after the start of the class. Registration and payment can be made at the YMCA Arts Center, 35 South 5th Street, Sunbury, PA 17801 or call 570-286-0818. If you would like more information about any or our classes call the Arts Center to speak with the staff.
