Explore your creativity for the first time—or the first time in years—at the Toledo Museum of Art. For more than a century, this community resource has offered classes for every age, every experience level, and every schedule. All classes and workshops are related to works of art in the TMA collection. Students will visit the galleries, learn about some of the iconic works of art, then combine that inspiration with their own creativity back in the studio. Looking for a creative outlet for the kids, wanting to try something new or seeking an opportunity to refine your skills? You’ll find it here.

Visual Language Workshops

The language of the visual world—whether it’s seen inside or outside the galleries—can be a challenge to interpret. The Museum’s new series of workshops aims to use the collection to engage in theories and methods for understanding imagery within art and beyond. The free “learning to look” sessions debut in June. “We’ve had a great response to these classes from many area companies, TMA staff, and volunteers,” said Mike Deetsch, interim Emma Leah Bippus Director of Education. “This is a really thought-provoking, educational experience that we want to offer the public as part of our broader initiative to teach visual literacy.”

Availability is limited, so advanced registration is required. Register here. Interested in bringing a large group? Email kblake@toledomuseum.org to make arrangements.


Withdrawal Policy

Students withdrawing from a class should notify the Registrar in writing at least one week prior to the start of class by completing and submitting a withdrawal form via e-mail or regular mail. Students will receive credit to attend another class of similar value that must be used no later than the following semester. See the Class Withdrawal Policy and Form for complete information.
