Classes at Community Arts School

Baldwin Wallace Community Arts School is taking the necessary steps to confidently deliver exceptional arts programs this fall. Whether it is a new ten-week hybrid class or a CAS UNBOXED™ five-week virtual course, students will be encouraged to grow and learn as artists.

We offer classes in Dance, Music, Theatre and Visual Arts for children and adults. Our class schedule provides options to meet virtually or in-person based on the chosen course, and teacher/student comfort level. This flexible schedule allows students to interact with and learn from each other in a safe and effective way.

We are committed to providing our families and the community with quality arts education now and into the future. 

Wondering why you don't see a registration fee? CAS has waived the typical $25 registration fee for all programs for the 2020-2021 academic year to make our programs more affordable during this difficult time.
