Art after School

Four-Part Series
4–5:30 pm | de Young

Join us at the de Young for a series of afterschool classes. Art after School is a four-week program offering in-depth exploration of the museum’s collection and art-making processes, with instruction by professional teaching artists. Students will spend time in the galleries and in our studio space discussing art and developing art-making skills. Each week students build on past projects and add techniques to their skill set.

Art after School classes take place at the de Young from 4–5:30 pm, once a week for four consecutive weeks.


  • January: Color and Form—combine and design with color and form.
  • February: Tools—discover new and surprising ways to use artists’ tools.
  • March: Texture—learn tips and tricks to create real or imagined textures.
