Arts Education Programming lies at the center of the ZACC mission to provide art instruction, experiences, and opportunities to a wide variety of ages and incomes.
Our adult education programs meet artists at every level—from beginners to seasoned artists. We bring in art teachers from a variety of fields to provide Missoulians with a large range of opportunities to expand their art knowledge. Young adults (16+) are welcome to join these classes as well unless listed. The ZACC is an outlet for teens to express themselves through art, learn and practice skills, and interact with professionals in the field.

Our most successful educational programming serves children from the entire valley area regardless of income. During the school year, our Young Artist Afterschool Program (YAAP) engages children in community art projects such as murals and mosaics, and individual projects. More concentrated art enrichment comes through the nine different camps in the summer; each focuses on a different disciplines or cultures.
We also recognize there are growing artists in our community that need classes geared to their art experience and age group. That is why we’ve founded the Growing Artist Series geared for awesome artists 12-years and older. Don’t let their talent go underdeveloped. The world needs more artist minds and this is the place to foster and cultivate them!
