Side Street Studio Arts is bringing our lab arts programming for teens to your home! Starting, June 4, every Thursday you can join our amazing artist-educators live on Facebook for some in-home creativity.
Classes will last from 30 to 70 minutes, and you will be able to send your questions or comments to be addressed during the session.
Virtual Drop-In Lab for Teens sessions will be suitable for the whole family, but be focused on the older of our young artists, with projects designed for grades 7-12. Sessions will feature activities that can use supplies from around your house OR from our Brown Bag Art Kits. To request a free Brown Bag Art Kit, visit us here: https://www.sidestreetstudioarts.org/communitymoves. All ages are welcome.
All Virtual Drop-In sessions are free and open to the public, but we welcome your tax-deductible donation of any size via our donation page, here: https://www.sidestreetstudioarts.org/donate. Suggested donation $5.
DRESS FOR A MESS: While we don’t try to get messy, but you may be using messy paints and other materials. Be sure to dress in clothing they (or you) won’t be sad to get messy, and set up an appropriate work space.
