Art Instructors

One of the most important resources that the Desert Art Center organization can bring to its mission of providing art education to the community is its sponsorship of art classes which are opened to the general public seven days a week. The auditorium multipurpose room and small gallery space make up the Art Education Center and are made available for the classes. We currently have 13 talented and experienced teachers who are locally and nationally known in their fields.
