Online Art Classes
We are now offering art classes via Zoom. Classes will be kept small, between 4-8 children per class. Supplies need to be purchased or obtained before the first class starts. Many supplies can be found at home. Supplies can also be ordered from Amazon, Lakeshore Learning, or Discount School Supply. Links to class supply lists are available for each class.
To register for classes, email email@example.com with your child's name and age and the class name, day and time you want to register for.
