It’s Never Too Late to Become an Artist

Davenport, Iowa (January 2, 2020) – What are your New Year’s resolutions? If you said take an art class, then the Figge Art Museum has you covered.

Anyone can become an artist and it’s never too late to try. Class offerings are for all skill levels from beginner to advanced and there is even a Clay for Kids class for ages 5 and up so kids can enjoy creative clay time and explore basic hand-building techniques.
