Arts for All Nevada offers a selection of affordable art classes for adults including:

Van Gogh Almond Blossoms


Paint & Sips:

Our Teaching Artists will offer you the opportunity to paint some of art history’s finest and funnest masterpieces, step-by-step. We encourage you to bring your own food and beverages, and have a great time with your friends. This class includes aprons for all guest, paints & brushes, and of course the canvas. You will learn how to paint the featured painting and take it home for all to enjoy! Classes generally last 3 hours, and are held at the Lake Mansion.





Thank Goodness It’s ART Friday!! In these classes you will find all sorts of different projects, anything ranging from making clay whistles to Paint Your Pet paintings (or collages, featured here), to making landscapes through the use of fabrics. Each class is completely different and will expand on so many more art mediums than just painting! Feel free to bring your own snack food because this class will be three hours long.






Art Explorations:

If you have been looking for an artistic environment that will allow you to take liberties with your ideas, with guidance from our wonderful Teaching Artists, then this is the place for you! In Art Explorations, we cover various mediums that will lead you to have a full portfolio of work that you can display at home and give to friends. This class usually offers a range of drawing techniques, such as with pencil and charcoal, and the basics of watercolor painting, as well as some printmaking methods. This class is relaxed and comfortable, and lasts for two hours, usually with a total of six weekly classes.

Clay classes can be found happening in our T.G.I.A.F. classes, as well as in Art Explorations, on occasion. When we do offer clay classes, it is usually through multiple class sessions. We will provide an assortment of tools, glazes, and will conduct the firing in our kiln so your ceramic project is ready to take home! This class is messy, so be sure to wear art-clothes!







You can also organize your own Private Art Party of your choice.  Creative fun for a group of friends, organization, family reunion, corporate team building, or anything else you want!

All Adult Classes take place at the Lake Mansion in Reno, 250 Court Street, one block south of the Truckee River on Arlington Avenue.  Free parking lot off Arlington Avenue!
