As we get ready for the fall season there is still so much uncertainty about what our collective future holds. In an abundance of caution surrounding the ongoing pandemic, the West Windsor Arts Council will offer mostly online and a few in-person classes this fall. To start, in-person classes will only be offered outdoors (plein air style) and for teens and adults. All other classes will be held online. We will remain flexible and ready to meet the needs of our students safely and creatively!

The good news is that our Teaching Artists and staff have gained wonderful experience this summer leading online camps and classes for all ages. We are confident that we can help you enjoy the online learning experience and continue to develop along your personal artistic journey. Our Art Kits have been a hit, and we will offer a new version for sale instead of a materials fee to support fall classes at home.

Our CiFA (Certificate in Fine Arts) program is now in its second year and we encourage young learners to enroll in this opportunity to be recognized for their commitment and achievements in the arts. CiFA certification has opportunities in both performing and visual arts, including singing, acting, drawing, painting, and sculpting. New this year is an opportunity for certification in digital arts and illustration! Look for our CiFA logo in the class description for the programs that qualify.

Early Bird Pricing is now in effect for all classes through September 1st, so don’t delay in registering for your favorites. The cost of classes does go up incrementally in the lead up to the start date, so we recommend signing up early. This also helps to ensure that a class you want to take does not get canceled due to a lack of registrations!

Finally, we invite you to join us for our annual Autumn Arts Afternoon on September 12th. This year, the event will be held online via Zoom and will feature a taste of many of our popular classes for both children and adults. Come experience demos, ask questions, and even make some art along with us! Please review our Events page for more info, coming soon.
