Online Classes

Hosted live on Zoom, SFCAC’s weekly classes will connect a community of creative young people with SFCAC Teaching Artists to create together in a virtual space. 

  • Maximum of 8 students per class means plenty of one-on-one attention from our teaching artists.  
  • 60 and 90-minute sessions with engaging art activities designed to spark the imagination, build critical thinking skills, and enhance creative self-expression
  • Classes are designed to foster interactive participation and open dialogue to create social connections between peers.
  • Enrollment includes a complimentary art kit with all materials needed for the class activities delivered to your home. (Students who live outside of San Francisco should enroll by 1-week before the class start date to ensure timely delivery of the supply kit).
  • Students will need to have access to a laptop computer, wifi, and zoom app to participate.

Online Class Offerings for Late Fall 2020

6 weeks: November 3 – December 19 (No class Thanksgiving week)

Art Studio @ Home (Children ages 3.5 – 5.5 years)

Saturdays, 11 am – 12 pm, Nov. 7 to Dec. 19


Designed for older preschoolers and kindergarten students, Art Studio at Home provides children with process-oriented, open-ended art experiences. Revisiting familiar materials from week to week deepens learning by allowing children to make connections and master techniques. 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art activities will focus on problem-solving, critical thinking, and reflective dialogue between peers and our teaching artists.

Architectural Sculpture (Grades 1-5)

Tuesdays, 3-4:30 pm, Nov. 3 to Dec. 15


Kids are like beavers … they are natural-born builders! We’ll explore a range of traditional, recycled, and repurposed materials including foamcore, cardboard, paper, and found objects to construct 3-dimensional works of art that challenge the mind and super-charge the imagination.


Drawing & Painting from Observation & Imagination (Grades 1-5) 

Thursdays, 2:30 – 4 pm, Nov. 5 to Dec. 17


Connect your head, heart, and hands through drawing and painting! We’ll build and strengthen skills through the exploration of line, shape, and color. Through close examination of objects, we’ll learn how to see more deeply and capture what we observe on paper. We’ll also tap into our imaginations to draw and paint the things we wish to see in the world!


All registration fees are final. No cancellations or refunds. In the event of low enrollment, SFCAC may request consolidation or rescheduling of classes. If you are unable to attend the new date and time, a refund will be issued. This is the only circumstance when refunds will be given.
