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 ages and levels discover and develop their skills as they create permanent mementos of fun-filled days in the park.

Yosemite Art Center offers a variety of classes and activities. Join us for one of our daily Art Classes or complete a craft in our Open Studio, great for artists of all ages and abilities.
