Arts Education at the Blue Heron Education Center

The Blue Heron Education Center is home for arts education classes and second home to many participating students in our community. We fill every classroom, nook and cranny with arts education activities all throughout the week. There is something for everyone of all ages. For over 30 years we have been providing arts education classes instructed by our very talented local artists. Classes range from painting, clay, violin lessons, encaustics, print making and more. We offer 3 sessions: Fall, Spring, and Summer. And we even have scholarships available. For more information, you can reach our Registrar at 206-259-3005. Welcome to the Blue Heron!
