Art Classes

City of Aurora, Cultural Services Division is excited to announce that we are opening up a limited number of in-person art and music classes for the fall session beginning in September. Classes are available for registration now with fall classes beginning as early as September 8.


The health and safety of our guests and staff is our top priority. Please be aware of the following modifications which are all based on guidance provided by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment which can be found at


We are using a phased approach to reopening classes in indoor spaces that complies with the current guidelines and adheres to strict safety protocols for both guests and staff. We are diligently working to keep the community and staff as safe as possible by implementing reduced facility capacities, limiting gatherings, enforcing social distancing guidelines, enhancing cleaning and sanitization efforts, and requiring face coverings.
