Arts Classes for Adults

The Umbrella has cancelled all in-person arts education classes and workshops until further notice. Instead, we have created The Umbrella @ Home where we will offer the best possible online arts education experiences that you have come to expect from us.  We will be adding online arts instruction opportunities, as well as free at-home DIY creative activities and artists demos on a rolling basis, so please check back frequently or subscribe to our newsletter.

Additionally, we are now offering curbside clay purchasing and firing through The Umbrella! For more information on our curbside clay policies, go to our Ceramics @Home page!
