Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have art classes for children?

Yes. Youth classes are held after school Monday – Thursday & on Saturdays.  During the summer, we offer a great variety of camps for Pre/K through Grade 12.  Mom & tot art classes start at age 2, independent classes start at age 4.

How long are your classes?

Classes generally run 8-12 weeks, with quarterly terms starting in September, January, April & June. Adult art classes are offered Monday – Saturday with start times of 9am, 12:30pm, & 6:30 (with some variations).  In addition, there are several workshops to choose from during each semester.

What is the difference between a class and a workshop?

Our classes follow similar formatting: 8-12 weeks in length, 2-3 hours in class each week.  On the other hand, workshops might be anywhere between 3-6 hours all done on one day.  Workshops may also span 1 or more days, 6 hours daily (for example).  Lengthy workshops are most common in the summer months. 

Does the BBAC offer scholarships?

Yes. For information about scholarships, click here.

Do you offer any course discounts? i.e., seniors, students, AARP, frequent flyers, etc.

Course discounts are available to current BBAC members.  The membership discount is $40 off per class enrollment.  Starting at $50, they last one year from the day of purchase.  For more about memberships, click here.
