Las Vegas Art Classes

Ever wondered where Las Vegas hones its artistic skills?

Las Vegas is a town that’s home to many seasoned artists and performers – such as the many artists who work on stage and off at Cirque du Soleil’s permanent Vegas shows. In so many ways, Las Vegas is a city with a flourishing arts scene, and it offers locals and visitors at every stage of life opportunities to learn new skills and hone existing ones.

The Winchester Dondero Cultural Center offers classes in painting, pottery, photography and more, with professional instructors.

The Las Vegas Academy of the Arts (LVA) is a public high school that offers classes in visual arts, dance, music and theater. While it’s primarily geared towards full-time high-school students, some of its classes are offered to the public.  

The Nevada School of the Arts, or NSA, offers artistic education to adults and children.  

If contemporary and provocative art is more your thing, then you’ll be interested in the workshops and events at the Sin City Gallery, which push boundaries and encourage students to think outside the box.

There’s more, from the City of Las Vegas Office of Cultural Affairs to specialized classes in private studios and art centers.

Wherever you are on your creative journey, a stop in Las Vegas could very well be worth your while.
