Classes and Workshops for Kids and Teens

The world's a stage for your child, and The Human Race is here to help them play their part. There's fun to be had for kids and teens ages 5 – 19.

Classes and workshops are held in the Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center, 116 North Jefferson Street in downtown Dayton unless otherwise noted.

Open house is held on the last day of the classes so that family and friends can share in what the students have been learning. Partial scholarships are available for qualifying families who are in need, thanks to the generous support of the Frank M. Tait Foundation. Download the scholarship application.

Save with our Early Bird Registration prices when you register your child at least one week prior to the first day of class.
