Adult Classes


The Adult Classes at TAF is a program designed to bring affordable art courses to adults in the Greater Lafayette area. Arts organizations and artists in the community have partnered with TAF to provide the public with a variety of classes that are accessible to beginner and experienced people interested in creatively expressing themselves. Classes vary in length and can include everything from fine arts to music and dance. A new schedule is posted seasonally throughout the year. Please note that all classes and workshops are held at the Wells Community Cultural Center, located at 638 North Street in Downtown Lafayette.



Cameron Maynard

Cameron will be teaching our Adult Guitar course


Join us for an 8-week session of guitar classes with Cameron Maynard! If you have a student currently enrolled in Cameron’s guitar or ukulele classes as part of our After School Arts Program, this is a great way to connect and jam out together. Whether you have never picked up a guitar or you consider yourself a decent player, this class will help you along your journey to learning to play the instrument. Students will learn how to finger a myriad of useful chords, as well as how to play a few useful scales. We will perform songs together using the skills you acquire during the 8-week course. Ultimately, students will be taught how to expand upon what they learn along the way - extending their knowledge of the instrument for weeks and hopefully years to come.

Instructor: Cameron Maynard
Location: The Arts Federation (638 North St, Lafayette, IN 47901)
Time: Thursdays, 5:45-7:00 PM
Tuition: $150 (must be paid in full – this class cannot be taken on a week-to-week basis)
