About Art Class:
Art Class is where Memphians learn. Young Arts Patrons presents a monthly educational program that transforms the Memphis community into one large learning campus by bringing short courses, workshops, lectures, and discussions out of the classroom and into a whole new environment. Art Class is led by not your average teacher on not your average subject matter and includes some of the most influential people in the arts community including artists, curators, musician, authors, scholars and other creatives. And this isn't just a class: A portion of Art Class donations and class fees are paid to the teacher (host speaker) or requested organization to allow them to continue creating in the Memphis community. #YAPARTCLASS
