Arts Classes for Kids

Until we are able to safely resume in-person arts education classes and workshops, most of our programming will be offered through 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!
