Virtual Classroom

Step-by-Step with Local Artists

Welcome to the Virtual Classroom! We are excited to offer these free learning opportunities to families.

We practice social distancing and ask that adults who are unvaccinated to wear a mask while taking classes at EIAA. Currently, we require all youth to wear masks while at EIAA. We understand that everyone has different comfort levels with everything going on right now, so we’ve created our very own Virtual Classroom for those of you who don’t feel comfortable coming back to in-person activities at EIAA. Browse through our classes and get creative from the comfort of your own home!

  • To filter the list of classes, select Topics and Grade Level in combination.
  • Some classes are a series, and some are one-and-done. When there is a series it is best to "take" these classes in order.
  • Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel. You can choose to be alerted when new classes are posted so you don't miss out! 

We hope you will share your projects with us so we can keep our connections strong! Share the classes with your friends, too!
