In addition to Saratoga Arts' own arts education offerings, The Arts Center is home to: 

Etudes Music School

Our Community Arts Education Program

For nearly 15 years, Saratoga Arts has been dedicated to offering quality fine art and fine craft classes, taught by regional artists, to students of all ages and at all artistic levels. In that time we’ve grown our program to its current capacity, where it now serves over 950 students a year and works with nearly 50 art teachers.  

Located in the Arts Center at 320 Broadway in Saratoga Springs, Saratoga Arts has several fine arts classrooms, a weaving studio, a 110-seat theater, two gallery spaces and a darkroom. We have on occasion, when our facilities can not accommodate a class, offered classes off-site as well.



The Saratoga Springs Walmart proudly supports the 2017-2018 Saratoga Arts' Education Program.

Photographing Artwork for Submission & Archival
with Harry Wirtz

This extended, full day workshop will teach you to use your digital camera to make quality photographs for documentation, press releases, jury submissions, and print editions of your work. Photographer and instructor Harry Wirtz will discuss setting up artwork for photography, low cost lighting options, basic camera adjustments, editing the image for accuracy, and more. Bring a camera and user manual; be familiar with its operation. “Point and shoot” and cell phone cameras can be made to work with some effort, but a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera is best. A demonstration with artwork and affordable lighting will be provided.
