Family Workshops

Spend a little quality time with the ones you love by creating something together! Our new monthly series invites a big person and a little person to create art side by side in a different medium each month! These two hour workshops provide a fun and rewarding time for parents, grandparents, big brothers and big sisters to work with a young person while exploring new materials and creating projects as a team.
