COVID-19 Online Learning Resources

“Education doesn’t stop when we leave the classroom and neither will our educators.” – Will Giles, teaching artist & Teen Programs Manager

Despite class cancellations amidst the COVID-19 health crisis, the work must continue. Especially in challenging times, art and expression — both its creation and its appreciation — tell us some truth about ourselves, about what it means to be a human being. We need to protect that. Thank you for your continued love and support during this time! Below, our incredible teaching artists offer online lessons, step-by-step instruction, and simple activities that you can do remotely:
