  • When I closed my Union Square graphic design company eight years ago, I thought, “OK! now I can return to art school.” Believing NYC was THE Center of Art, I checked out all the art classes I could. And guess what I found in my own backyard? The Katonah Art Center, offering encouraging, inspiring teachers, a variety of classes, flexible schedules, and interesting and friendly classmates. My second home!

  • A rare place that has both quantity and quality-any true artist's dream.

  • There’s no reason just the kids should have all the fun!

  • My family absolutely loves the Katonah Art Center. The instructors are excellent -- they are fun, smart and engaging. It really seems like whatever my boys can think of, Keith or David will find a way to help them make it. In addition to having fun there, they are learning skills, which I really like. I want them to have fun and express themselves, but I also want them to learn how to draw and paint and sculpt. They get all of that at KAC. I seriously think they would go every day if they could.

  • My three kooky kids, each quite different from the other, all thrilled and thrived at Katonah Art Center for 7 or so years exploring their creativity in a wide array of media. The teachers are warm and fun, nurturing and inspiring. The relationships formed, freedom of expression encouraged, the love of art in all it's forms nourished - will feed their souls throughout their lives.
