Greetings!

With your safety as our priority, all of our classes are virtual this Fall. Although our building is temporarily closed, we continue to hire great instructors to bring you creative learning experiences for the whole family.

We ran our first Zoom ceramics class on April 30th and have not skipped a beat. We've upgraded from using our personal smart phones to professional video equipment and have an amazing adaptive program staff who are now producers, editors, and A/V technicians for our classes!

You might be surprised to hear that we've drawn in people from all over the world for our virtual classes... and we hope that you'll be inspired to join in as well. We have new Equity initiatives and a sliding scale designed for families and youth. Click here for the full announcement.

Be sure to scroll through the multiple pages of classes & events!
