We have been missing YOU, community of artists and crafters!
Read on (& watch video in links) for how we've responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, with ongoing and upcoming initiatives.
Like all non-profit organizations, we’ve been forced to reinvent our way of doing business, while remaining true to our mission. In May we launched a LOT of new initiatives and projects. These seek to satisfy a need in our community to connect (in new ways), create and engage while staying distant and safe:
1) Craft at Home
Glass Mosaic Kits
Clay TO GO kits
Ceramics at Home (*open to existing students), including wheel & tool rental, glazing & firing options
2) Socially Distanced and Hybrid Classes/Workshops
We've offered make up classes in Kids Wood, Kids Clay, Teen Clay, Teen Drawing Club, Adult Woodworking, Adult Oil Painting (*Stained Glass coming in September!)
We've offered new meetups in Adults Plein Air Painting, Digital Clay Glazing Workshop & *Clay Handbuilding (*coming late August/early Sept)
