Arts Education

DIY Family Art Lessons!

These projects are some of our art teachers’ favorites that can be done at home with your families.  We are providing these lessons in response to the Arts Education survey where you asked for ideas for projects to do with your children.  We will provide instructions, template if needed, and samples made by our Arts Ed committee members.

Workshop dates:

  • March 17 @ 6 p.m. “Anything Green” Family Art Night! More information coming soon!

ART Education Workshops for Parents!

These workshops are designed for adults to come together and do a relaxing art project while listening to or engaging in a presentation by a guest speaker.  The theme for this year’s workshop series is The Arts for Therapy and Resiliency during COVID.  The art project we do together on these evenings can be done later with children if you wish.
