Workshops for All Levels

Peninsula School of Art welcomes students of all levels of experience - novice to advanced. Some of our programs are tailored for beginners and some require prior experience; most welcome a range of skill levels. They feature an appropriate mixture of exercises, lectures, demonstrations, presentations, along with plenty of hands-on experience.

Choosing A Workshop

Our guidelines are intended to help you determine which workshops are best suited to your level of experience. Each workshop has been rated with one or more skill levels. These levels indicate the technical knowledge and experience a student should have to effectively participate in the program. If you need help deciding if a workshop is right for you, please email or call our staff at 920.868.3455.
