AUGUST 18, 2020. ST. JOSEPH, MICH - Krasl Art Center (KAC) is proud to announce the Fall 2020 outdoor & in-person programs, take-home kits, and virtual classes starting Thursday, September 17. Classes are open to both KAC members and non-members at all age ranges and skill levels. Students must register 5 days before class begins. All programs are available online at krasl.org, or call/visit the center at 269.983.0271, 707 Lake Boulevard, St. Joseph, Mich.
 
Outdoor and virtual classes offer a safe way for students to explore their creativity in a wide range of mediums and class lengths. Classes will take place on KAC’s Oval Lawn. All students will be spaced 6’ apart in tents (when not exploring the natural beauty of St. Joseph) and required to wear masks while class is in session.

Requested by popular demand, KAC is excited to offer five (5) Krasl Kits this fall in addition to virtual and in-person courses. Krasl Kits contain all of the supplies and instructions to complete amazing projects from home, both for youth/families and adults (13+). Youth and Family kits include Tye-Dye masks, Clay Dinos & Dragons. Adult kits include Slab-Constructed coffee mugs. Purchase and schedule your pickup at the education tab at krasl.org.
 
Home-school, virtual youth classes (ages 5-12) are available in ceramics, drawing, & animation. Taught by local professional artists, these classes enrich children’s artistic skills in a fun, virtual atmosphere. Students will be able to schedule art supply and clay-piece pickups once enrolled. Classes include Mud-Makers, Cartooning: From Paper to Sculpture, Greenscreen & Stop-Motion Animation, & Drawing & Painting with Depth. Visit the education tab at krasl.org for full descriptions, pricing, and registration.

Art classes make a great night out (or in) with someone special! Adult/teen (ages 13+) classes include drawing, painting, and ceramics. Visit the education tab at krasl.org for full listings, descriptions, and registration. Students in virtual classes will not have access to the studios.
