Classes and Workshops

Osceola Center for the Arts has earned a fabulous reputation for offering classes to the greater community. Youth Classes, Adult Classes, Camps, and a Young Actors Company highlight the educational resources and recreational learning opportunities which Osceola Arts continue to provide with sterling consistency. Classes revolve seasonally, so make sure to give the Center a call for the latest class information and registration details!

Youth classes run seasonally at Osceola Arts, and there are separate classes for many different fields of interest. For example, there are visual art classes for children which focus on drawing and/or painting, classes which teach children to craft with clay, a youth string orchestra program (which requires an audition to take part in), international visual arts classes in which teens learn about art from all around the world, and acting & performance classes, such as comedy acting and other such specialized topics. Some of these classes have a “homeschool” element to them while others do not.

Osceola Arts’ offers a Young Actors Company program which is particularly popular and well-renowned. Aspiring thespians from the age of 5 all the way to 17 are encouraged to take part, learning all sorts of skills and techniques, and culminating in impressive performances throughout the year. Dance, acting, singing, and more are taught by professional instructors, as the budding actors learn to create, play, and work together in a theatrical environment.

Separate camps are offered for Spring and Summer sessions. They are not the same every year, but previous camps have been focused on theatre, musical theatre, dance, sketch comedy, movie making, puppetry, Broadway performance, and the technical side of theatre. Some camps are one week, some are two weeks, and some last simply for the duration of Spring Break. Camps will usually run from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, with supervised care available in the hours surrounding each of those times.

For Adults, there are many evening classes which meet one night a week for three hours. Others meet in the daytime, rather than the evening. Regardless, all of these classes offer a mature and in-depth view on specialized topics, such as clay building, painting, drawing, and other refined forms of art. Painting classes which teach a similar technique to Bob Ross have been popular in the past. These classes are excellent for adults who are looking to connect with art in a meaningful way, while maintaining their professional and familial responsibilities, as well.
