Tuition Plus

As we attempt to serve the broadest possible public and keep class fees competitive, as with many other community art schools, tuition fees unfortunately do not cover the full expenses of the Museum Art School in offering courses and workshops. On average, the fees charged in tuition cover only 68-75% of the total expenses.

Tuition Plus provides a way for students to support the Museum Art School by contributing toward these additional expenses. By making a fully tax-deductible gift in the amount of $100 for each registered course, you can help the Museum Art School continue its community mission of providing the finest studio art and humanities learning experiences for children and adults.
