Pop-Up Art Classes

We are excited to be able to provide “PopUp” art classes for those who are interested in a two-hour art adventure that requires no experience and nothing to bring!

Gather your friends, invite your relatives or come alone and enjoy an opportunity to try something new or indulge a long-lost hobby with no long-term commitment or investment required.

Snacks and drinks are included as well as all necessary supplies.

At the end of the two hours you will have a finished piece of art to take home!

$20 fee per person unless otherwise indicated.

Call the Art Alliance at 814-234-2740 or stop by the office at 824 Pike Street, Lemont, PA, at the back of the Gallery Shop, to sign up before the class.

You can also sign up for Pop-Ups online! Choose the Pop-Up Classes under the Session Search
