Summer Art Workshops
31st Annual: May 19th* – July 31st, 2015
You can take a workshop anywhere, but there’s no place as gorgeous as Tahoe! Classes can be taken for credit or non-credit.
We are now located in the brand new Holman Arts and Media Center!
We’re very excited to be in this brand new facility generously donated by Rob and Robin Holman, and supported by numerous community members. It’s bigger, brighter, has new equipment and facilities.
We’re currently working on the 2015 workshop schedule. Please revisit this page as it will be updated.

General Information on Summer Workshops
Lake Tahoe and the scenic Sierra Nevada Mountains truly inspire the artist in us all. The workshops teach new techniques and expand your knowledge in the medium. There are many activities in the area to enjoy while you’re here also, such as swimming, boating, golfing and hiking to mention a few. Contact us for further information or to receive a printed copy of our schedule at firstname.lastname@example.org or 775.881.7588.
SNC offers a variety of summer workshops given by nationally known ceramists, glass artists, painters, sculptors, printmakers, digital artists, photographers, paper makers, jewelers, and more.
On Tuesday night at 7pm each week during the workshops, we’ll host our “Meet the Artist” lecture in the Prim Library, which will be immediately followed by an informal reception in the Tahoe Gallery. It’s free and open to the public.
Students can take workshops for personal enrichment or college credit. Tuition includes some materials, possible firings, equipment rental, etc. Upon paid registration, students will receive an information packet with maps and directions to the college, where the class will meet, what to bring to the workshop, and other pertinent information, as well as Tahoe visitors info.
