What We Offer Creatives in Olympia
While we embrace the traditional arts such as painting, drawing, and music, we also love the new ways we can express ourselves via technology. So, in line with giving our creators every opportunity to have their voice heard, we offer our audio recording studio a discount for our members. Our audio recording studio is a professional audio recording booth, lined with soundproofing and equipped with computers and microphones to record your podcast, music, family history, or audiobook.
Adult and Kids Art Classes at Olympia Lamplighters
Once a month, we offer a youth-friendly figure drawing class 101, which is held every Saturday for children ages 11 and up! While an adult must accompany ages 11 to 14, children 15 and older may utilize this class without adult supervision.
Adult art classes are offered regularly, from drawing to adult figure-drawing, painting, and more! Find a complete list of our adult art and creative classes on our Events page.
