Young Artist Classes

Summer Kidz Create Program

Hello Parents and Young Artists,

 

I can't wait to see you all and get started on the 2020 Summers Kidz Create Program! I'm so pumped with the planned classes and I hope you are too! We had to make changes due to the COVID-19  to adhere to the social distancing and reduced capacity protocols in accordance with State guidelines. Due to the restrictive circumstances, classes for 5-7 year olds will not take place this summer. All classes will be held out doors and are subject to change. If the weather is an issue, changes might have to be made so please check Facebook and our website regularly. All class attendees must bring their own water bottles; if desired, attendees may bring their own face masks.

 

Let's be flexible, let's get excited, let's enjoy what this summer has to offer. I'm ready to have some fun and be creative! Come be creative with me!

 

All the best,

Ms. BB
