Explore the Studio Arts

Each year at It’s Your Show, I’m struck by the beautiful paintings and drawings that our students submit. Many are picking up a paintbrush or pencil for the first time, so it’s truly amazing how much they’re able to accomplish by the end of class. I think it’s a testament to our instructors, but also to the creative spirit and energy that our students, many coming from backgrounds far removed from the art world, are able to bring to class each week.

If you’re looking to start a new hobby, or rediscover those paints and brushes that have been packed away for years, we have summer classes that can help you get started. Check out our workshops below, and some images of student artwork from past shows.

Arts at UCLA Extension


The Visual Arts program offers a range of courses for adult students who want to improve their artistic skills, pursue a hobby, or just have fun in the classroom! Click here to view our spring course offerings in studio arts, art history and photography.  Most courses meet in the evening or on weekends, and many are appropriate for students with no previous background in the arts. This spring we’ll be offering courses in Collage and Assemblage, Ikebana, Caravaggio, Photographic Portraiture, and more. Courses are open enrollment, so there is no lengthy application process; students can enroll in any courses that they feel suits their experience level and interests.
