Scottsdale Artists’ School Youth Academy is Arizona’s premier art school for kids.
The Scottsdale Artists’ School Youth Academy offers workshops where kids and teens can discover and express their vision through art! Students are inspired to draw, paint and sculpt while experiencing an authentic artists’ school using professional equipment, lighting, props and tools. Beginners to advanced students are encouraged to attend classes offered throughout the year to acquire a foundation for future creative studies. Linda Pullinsi, Youth Academy Program Manager, works with a team of professional artists, assistants and interns, many of whom have been with the Youth Academy since the beginning. Students of all ages enjoy art and the decision making skills used while creating art helps students with all other subjects and aspects of their lives.
We offer week long summer fine art programs as well as a 6 week after school art class on Mondays for age 6 & up, a Saturday afternoon class for age 11 & up, and a Wednesday night Underground Art Club for teens..

“Thank you so much for letting me have this wonderful opportunity to enjoy the wonders of art, I am honored. Some things I learned are how to draw a blind contour, how to handle clay and how to draw objects with shadows. These past two weeks have been exciting and fun. I hope I am able to take another art class soon.” –student
