Thursdays, 9 AM–12 PM

June 25–July 30 (6 Weeks, 18 Total Hours of Instruction)

Online and On Location



We are pleased to offer this class online using Zoom video conferencing. This mimics, as closely as possible, what normally happens in our classrooms at the Athenaeum. In this time when many of us are experiencing anxiety and isolation, this format allows us to continue to provide enriching experiences of artistic growth and community building.


The technology to make this happen is quite simple. You only need a computer (phone or tablet) with a camera, microphone, and internet connection and we are here to help you should you experience any technical difficulties.


Once you register, look for an email with more information and detailed instructions in the week preceding the class start date.


Stay safe and be well! And thank you for your continued support of our school.
