learn something new

Give yourself the gift of art and sign up for a VAAL art class or workshop. They are taught by a professional teaching staff, and encompass a variety of media. Whether you are a beginner or advanced, these classes are for you. Classes are no longer held at the New Five Plaza location; please check individual class offerings for location. To check out the classes that are currently being offered, click on the current semester.

Registration Process
  • The first week of  registration is for members only. Open registration will follow.

  • Registration for workshops and classes must be made by mail and include payment of tuition for all classes/workshops selected for the semester. Classes must be paid in full (classes or workshop fees cannot be pro-rated).

  • Class size is limited and enrollment is based on the postmark on the envelope. You will be notified only if a class is full or canceled. A full refund will be given in either case.   

Refund Policy

Because one person can make the difference as to whether or not a class or workshop is held, please make sure you are committed to the dates/courses you are selecting. If you cancel prior to 7 days before the start of class, a full refund, minus a $10 registration fee, will be issued. If you cancel less than 7 days prior to the start of a class, you will only receive a 50% refund. No refunds will be made after the start of a class. A full refund will be issued if a class is canceled by VAAL.

Class or Workshop Cancellation

Please check with Livonia Public Schools. If Livonia Public Schools are closed due to weather, VAAL will be closed. Any class cancelled due to weather closing will be made up at a later date.

VAAL Faculty

The VAAL teaching staff is made up of  professionals. You are invited to review the credentials of these highly qualified instructors.
