Join us on November 23 for our first ever Family Day—a day of family-friendly ornament making just in time for the holidays! Parents and guardians with children ages 12 and up are welcome to register with their kids. A blog post from the National Endowment for the Arts talks about the importance of art as an “essential way of spending time and developing skills alongside your child.” We know it’s hard not to be jealous when your kids come to summer camps. Now is your chance to tackle industrial arts together and bond over the process of art making.

Don’t wait to register before these special classes fill up. As always, members get 10% off all classes! If you aren’t a member, sign up for perks like early registration, tuition discounts, and more. See you (and your family) soon!
