From Friday family nights on the clay wheel to guided photo explorations of Burlington's historic South End, BCA's youth, teen, and family classes are designed to nurture lifelong passions. Students build confidence quickly with personalized instruction from experienced teaching artists.

Lifelong painters, burgeoning jewelers, and those merely inspired to make friends and try something new are all welcome at BCA. Our arts classes provide not only small-group instruction with a deep focus on individual style, expectations, and ability, but professional development opportunities as well. Many artists who have passed through our studios now run successful businesses, exhibit in galleries, and use our state-of-the-art facilities to continue their craft.


Burlington City Arts is supported by the New England Foundation for the Arts through the New England Arts Resilience Fund, part of the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund, an initiative of the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with major funding from the federal CARES Act and the American Rescue Plan Act from the National Endowment for the Arts.
