Kids & Teens

Youth Art Studios

During the school year, we offer a small number of classes to older children and teens who are passionate about art-making and desire a high degree of skills development. 


Saturday Morning Discovery

Saturday Morning Discovery is a free, introductory art experience designed for children ages 5-13. Sessions will take place virtually on Saturday mornings during the school year and provide family fun and learning by awakening a passion for art in children and their parents.

Children have the opportunity to learn from artist-teachers in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, drawing and painting, printmaking, weaving, and seasonal activities.


Summer Art Studios

Summer Art Studios at Southwest School of Art include 1-week and 2-week classes for students ages 5-18.  Over 100 classes are offered for youth of all skill levels, in a positive, nurturing, and fun environment.  Each week brings a new selection of classes and each one is taught by professional artists and artist educators.
Morning classes (9am - Noon) are offered for students ages 5 & 6, and for students who are age seven (7) and older, both morning (9am - Noon) and afternoon (1pm - 4pm) classes are available.


Mobile Arts Program

For over 25 years, our Mobile Arts Program (MAP) has served the greater San Antonio area by taking art to the community.  Supported by gifts from many generous donors, we make art education portable by "mobilizing" art teachers and sending them into area schools (grades K-8), shelters, community centers, libraries at a very reasonable cost.
MAP provides uses hands-on learning and demonstrations by practicing artists to deliver high-quality educational programming that complements classroom curriculums.
Each year, MAP participants learn color theory, composition, form and more, in media such as book arts, drawing and painting, clay, sculpture, weaving, design and architecture.
