SUMMER RESOURCES FOR FAMILIES

Discovery doesn’t stop because summer plans may have changed. Take a look at our new collection of fun and engaging online resources for young artists to enjoy at home.

Using easy-to-find materials, Studio artists demonstrate lessons that promote exploration and creativity—helping learners K–Grade 2 and Grades 3–5 build key skills that are essential for learning. New videos and learning resources will be posted through the summer to keep your child engaged.

Coming Soon: In addition to the videos below, we will be featuring a new collection of art lessons presented by teen artist instructors in our Teen Apprenticeship Program in mid-July. See a sample lesson.
