Saturday Art School

Spring 2022 Is Back in Person!

Who / What: Saturday Art School is an extracurricular visual arts program for children in grades Kindergarten to 12. Local children and teens explore ideas and materials with advanced art education students, under the direction of faculty and graduate assistants, each Saturday for eight weeks.

2022 Big Idea: Be/Longing:

We all wish to belong... to a friendship, to a family, to a community. When we belong we feel connected, valued, and supported. And while there is comfort in solitude, loneliness leaves us feeling disconnected, isolated, and adrift. We long to belong. A lack of belonging is felt by the individual, but the responsibility to offer belonging belongs with the group. How can we feel like we belong when no one has reached out a hand of welcome and support?  When we belong,  feel seen, heard, understood.

Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Covid-19 Protocols

Please note that with the continued risk of Covid-19, all of us at Saturday Art School will be following masking protocols and expect the same from all young artists and families to ensure the health and safety of all. All Saturday Art School Faculty and Staff are vaccinated, but will continue to practice proper masking protocols as directed by Nazareth College and the State of New York. We ask that all young artists to mask as if they would in school - mask breaks will be provided as necessary; and that Parents/Guardians mask for pick-up and drop-off.

Additionally, the College is now requiring proof of full vaccination status, or proof of negative tests for large gatherings, such as Saturday Art School. We will ask for proof of vaccination for you and your child on the first day of Saturday Art School. If you cannot provide vaccination status for either you or your child, you will need to provide proof of a negative test before each Saturday Art School class. 

If you have any questions or concerns about any of these protocols please email


Registration for Saturday Art School 2022 is now closed.
