Virtual Classroom

Step-by-Step with Local Artists

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

Fun new videos will be added to the Virtual Classroom throughout the summer, so please check back often. We know that art making is a process that soothes the soul, and boy do we need that right now!

  • 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!
