Visitors learn art tips and techniques at the Yosemite Art Center with experienced teachers

Yosemite Art Center

Artists capture the beauty of Yosemite through various media. If you’ve always wanted to paint Half Dome, capture wildflowers on paper, or learn a new, artistic way of looking at the wonders around you, Yosemite’s art workshops are waiting for you. Artists of all levels discover and develop their skills, as they create permanent mementos of fun-filled days in the park.

With the Yosemite Valley as your inspiration, you can nurture the artist within you — with a little help from acclaimed artists and artisans — in Yosemite Conservancy art workshops

Yosemite Art Center is closed for the winter season. Join us again in spring 2016. View our 2016 Arts Schedule.
