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, creative 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.

Nurture the artist within you — with a little help from acclaimed artists and artisans — in Yosemite Conservancy art workshops. Join us next year, when classes restart in March. View the Arts Schedule for 2017.
