Each year, over 1,200 children and adults enroll in The Umbrella’s 175 classes and workshops. From drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, stained glass, and mixed media art, to dance, movement, yoga, and wellness, to drama, art history, and creative writing, we offer something for everyone. Our courses are taught by professional artists with years of teaching experience.  We also offer extremely popular summer and school vacation programs.



All of The Umbrella classes follow the Concord Public Schools and Town of Concord closings, delays, and holidays.  No classes will be held on Concord Public School snow days and holidays. In the event of a delayed opening of the Concord Public Schools, all morning classes at The Umbrella will be cancelled; classes beginning after 12 noon will run on schedule.  Make-up classes will be scheduled.  Please check your local news source for the most up to date information.
