Each year, Rochester Art Center offers a large variety of youth and adult education programs. These exceptional offerings include classes, workshops, film screenings, lectures, and gallery tours for all ages.
Programs are designed to encourage an understanding and appreciation of the visual arts. Youth programs provide valuable hands-on art experiences under the direction of professional Art Center Educators and also through guest artists. Classes, after-school art groups, career and portfolio counseling, along with the popular Total Arts Day Camp, are just some of the programs offered for youth at the Art Center.
Community members are invited to join us as we celebrate two of the exhibitions currently on view: The Human Scale and Anne George: "Bite Down." The event will kick off with a performance in the gallery as part of "The Human Scale" followed by a reception and artist talk with Anne George.
