Activities & Classes

Be an Artist or Craft Maker for a Day - Or Longer

Those itching to get into the studio are in luck in Portland. It’s fitting for such a prolific community of artists to have so many options for weekend and one-day classes offered through local colleges, organizations, and businesses where visitors can explore painting, writing, bookmaking, and ceramics, among others, for adults and youth both.

Pottery, sculpture, and jewelry making classes can be found in area studios open to those ready to apply their skills or explore their creative side for the first time.

Workshops focused on nurturing creativity are also available through local arts organizations where attendees can take the sea glass they’ve collected on a local beach and turn it into a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. The Portland Museum of Art offers immersive, hands-on ways to experience their exhibits through gallery talks and creative activities where children and adults alike can create their own art with the work of local artists as inspiration. Outside of the city, world-class schools and institutes offer programs for craft makers, film and photography, woodworking, and boat-building to all who are interested, either for long-term or summer stays or just to take a workshop for a day or an afternoon.
