New: Chickadee Art Adventures, Ages 1-3

The Chickadee class is a toddler art playgroup for walkers to 3-year-olds. You and your child will have the opportunity to interact with sensory and art materials as you rotate through different stations at your own pace. Register or attend a free demo on Sept. 5.

3-Week Comic Book Workshop, Ages 6-11

In this three-week series, you’ll learn about character development, the movement of heroic figures, and how to stage them in dramatic ways. You’ll employ a variety of materials including pencil, watercolor, pen, and ink to create images in a comic book form. No strong drawing skills are needed, just your love of comics! Register.
