Adult & Teen Workshops & Classes

NEW online and in-person classes and workshops available for Winter 2021!

The museum is now offering both in-person and virtual online classes!  De-stress and take some much needed time for yourself to learn something new, have fun, and meet new people safely. We have a wide variety of new classes and workshops that will fit every schedule, budget, and interest.

Our virtual classes will have the same hands on, educational, fun, and relaxing experiences, just in a different way and in some ways even better! For our new in-person classes, there are many new changes we will be implementing based on current health and safety guidelines to ensure a fun and creative, yet safe, environment. We have decreased class sizes to only 8-9 students per instructor with 6 ft spaced out individual seating. All CMA staff members and students are required to wear masks and art materials/tool kits will be made for each individual student whenever possible.

*PLEASE NOTE: If the Ohio Public Health Advisory System increases to a Level 4 Public Emergency or makes recommendations that it is unsafe to hold class in person, most classes will be moved to virtual classes instead. Each class is different, please see details for more info.

UPDATE: Dear School of Art Students,

Here is an update on classes, artwork pick up, and answering some of your frequently asked questions. We have been busy working hard on many new and exciting School of Art activities at the Canton Museum of Art:

All artwork is available for pick up during regular museum hours

• Ceramics students wishing to clean out lockers and finish glazing remaining work will be able to sign up for a ticketed time slot: This is to ensure that we do not have too many people in the ceramics studio at one time. Ceramics studio hours will not be available to create new student work or trim work, only to finish glazing work. Cleaning and sanitizing procedures (listed in the room) will need to be implemented by anyone using the space.  

Thank you everyone for your support, patience and understanding during this unprecedented time. We sincerely hope that we will see you for online classes or at the museum very soon!



To withdraw from a class and receive a full refund, please contact the Museum Art Education Department (5) days before the scheduled class start date (; (330) 453-7666 x108). Consideration may be taken in cases involving emergency situations.

This (5) day policy allows the Museum time to purchase class materials, contact teaching staff with enrollment information, and permits the Museum time to contact wait-listed students.

Each class must meet a minimum enrollment requirement. If the minimum enrollment requirement is not met, the class is subject to cancellation. Registrants will be notified of cancellations by email no less than 24 hours before the scheduled class start date and will receive a full refund. 

The Museum may cancel classes due to severe weather conditions. If the museum closes, our website will be updated and students will be notified via email or by phone. Upon cancellation, a make-up class will be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor.

If for any reason you would not like you or your child’s image to be used please notify your instructor at the beginning of your event or class. 

In the event reasonable attempts to contact emergency contact info is unsuccessful, the museum will (1) administer basic treatment deemed necessary by CMA staff or (2) transfer the child to any hospital reasonably accessible if necessary.
