Arts Classes for All Ages in a Variety of Media


The Umbrella Arts Center offers a wide variety of in-person arts education instruction for adultsteens, and youth, as well as a summer camp and vacation week programs. We constantly work with our teachers to adapt and design new opportunities to learn, socialize, and experiment with the arts. New classes and workshops are posted on a rolling basis every few months, so be sure to check back often or subscribe to our newsletter for updates!

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: To protect the most vulnerable members of our community, and in keeping with updated CDC guidance, The Umbrella is instituting policies requiring visitors, artists, staff and students to wear a mask in indoor public areas at 40 Stow Street, regardless of vaccination status. The Umbrella is additionally instituting a policy requiring adult students to be fully vaccinated before the first class. If you have a reason why you are ineligible to be vaccinated, please contact us. This policy is in effect as of August 23, 2021 and is subject to change. The Umbrella's full Covid safety guidelines can be found here.

Registration for Winter Session classes will open December 1st at 10:00am!
