Arts and Crafts
Founded in 1980, the Tallahassee Senior Center for the Arts offers a supportive environment for both beginning and advanced artists to receive guidance from experienced instructors. Students also benefit from ongoing art exhibits, special classes, and opportunities to display and sell their art.

Weekly Studio Classes
On-going studio classes meet on a weekly basis and do not require pre-registration. Pay the days you attend. Instructors work with individual students, and students assist and critique one another in a rewarding collaborative environment. It is recommended that you visit the class and talk to the instructor prior to joining; the instructor will provide you with a supply list for that class. Studio Artists have the opportunity to exhibit in the center’s gallery spaces. All classes are located at the Senior Center Art Studio unless otherwise noted. Classes do not meet on holidays, L3X week, nor Maintenance Week. $9 per class Age 50+, $11 Others (age 18-49). Or buy an art card that gives you eight classes for the price of seven.
