"Experience the Arts with Us!"

**Memberships are 'individual' memberships covering ONE student (except for family memberships).  You can ONLY register the person who has the membership at the member rate (except for family memberships) for classes.  Friends can be registered as a non-member in a SEPERATE transaction.  Registering at the member rate without a membership delays your registration.  You must be fully paid before registration is complete.

If you need help after office hours, please see these tips.  Thank you!

**Classes are listed by date.  Please scroll down for newest additions.


Use the search box to quickly find the classes you need!

We offer classes for adults, teens and children.  Our class sessions run Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
Please check back as we update our class offerings seasonally and occasionally add additional classes!

Children’s classes are designed to be age appropriate to give your child the best experience possible.

**You can add a 'guest'  to your member registration if your 'guest' is also a member

(for example, for those that have family, patron, etc. memberships which include more than one person in the membership).

If the 'guest' you are adding does NOT have a membership, you will need to register them in a separate transaction from your member rate transaction, and register them as a non-member.  Registering them as a member delays their registration as all registrations must be paid in full before they are considered final. 


PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF CLASS REGISTRATION DEADLINES.  If you wish to register for a class after the deadline, please contact the NHAC Office (412) 364-3622 or visit the center at 3432 Babcock Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15237. 

Please note: No refunds/credits will be issued after first class/day of camp. Compensation/makeups for missed classes is not available. Refunds for classes & workshops given if cancelled one week prior.  Memberships are non-refundable. 

**Payment required upon registration. Registrations not finalized within 15 minutes are automatically removed as classes have limited space.
