Schedule of Fine Art Classes & Workshops in Tubac
We are so pleased to announce that the schedule of fine art classes and workshops at our newly formed Tubac School of Fine Art LLC has been finalized, and registration is open! The art school is located in Tubac, Arizona’s El Presidito.
Tubac is a historic destination for the arts, known for its beautiful skies, surrounding mountain ranges, and abundant wildlife. The Tubac Golf Resort is within walking distance to the village filled with over 100 eclectic shops, art galleries, and studios. Situated in the old town in a charming complex of adobe brick buildings, the school is the ideal place to ponder the beauty that surrounds the town in splashes of color and light. It is truly the village where art and history meet.
You can now search for the perfect fine art class or workshop for you. Whether you prefer to paint in oil, acrylic, watercolor, or pastels we have classes for you.
