Courses for Adults

MCG Youth & Arts offers art classes for adults as well as youth. Take the time out of your busy life to pause, connect and create in one of Pittsburgh’s best art facilities. Whether you’re an artist, art educator, art lover, or someone seeking a hands-on hobby, our staff of professional teaching artists will help you nourish your spirit in our beautiful and unique facility.

Digital Illustration
Teaching Artist: Jill Wiggins
Wednesdays
Oct 1 – Dec 3 (10 classes)
6 – 9 pm
Tuition: $200
Materials: $50
Open To: All Experience Levels
Learn to create beautiful vector graphics in this class featuring Adobe Illustrator. Each week you will create a unique piece of artwork that can be resized infinitely while remaining crisp when printed. This is possible because Illustrator draws with paths not pixels. Some of the projects you’ll be creating include a logo, a perspective (architectural) drawing, maps and infographics. We’ll even create a cartoon character!

Studio Pottery
Teaching Artist: Jeff Guerrero
Tuesdays
Oct 7 – Nov 25 (8 classes)
6 – 9 pm
Tuition: $160
Materials: $60
Open To: All Experience Levels
Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced potter, you’ll have a great time at MCG. Although we tend to gravitate towards wheel throwing and functional pottery, you are welcome to create hand-built ornamental and sculptural work, as well. Works made in this class will be high-fired in our gas kiln so they’ll look great and also be microwave and dishwasher safe.
