About BellinghamART

As the premier provider of art classes in Bellingham and Whatcom County we provide drawing and painting classes for all ages and abilities. Our professional artist/instructors teach engaging, age-appropriate classes, and encourage our students to explore their creativity and develop confidence their art skills.


Our classes go beyond ‘fun’ art projects. We provide quality art instruction for children as young as 4 that develops traditional art skills and increases self-confidence. While teaching a child to draw, paint and sculpt we include academic information in subjects such as social studies, geography, math and science.


Our goal is to give Teens confidence in art. Students learn how to draw, paint and sculpt; they also develop creative problem solving, and essential life skills to achieve success in school and in life. Our supportive, non-competitive environment allows students to explore creativity with new materials and techniques and ensure skill development.


Learning to draw and paint can change an adults life. Students receive ‘hands-on’ art instruction in a wide range of mediums and techniques and their artistic sensibilities are valued and encouraged. Students follow the principles of drawing and painting from observation and learn technique, and application through practice in classical training.
