No time for business as usual.
Following the murder of George Floyd, and with the continued unrest in our city and nation, we have decided to take a different approach to our summer offerings. We stand in solidarity with the movement and want to align our work with broader efforts to seek justice for Black lives and other marginalized communities.
We believe that art is a powerful tool for processing and expressing our deepest hurts and hopes. As the urgency of the moment passes, we want to play an active role in ensuring conversations about social justice, anti-racism, and community building keep happening.
To that end, we have restructured our summer schedule to focus on Open Studio time that will include the option for both self-directed art-making and artist-led activities. By shifting to a less formal structure, and adding new content such as our focus on Artful Activism, we hope to engage participants as active change-makers in our community.
Our summer session will run for five weeks from July 13-August 14. We will host two age-specific sessions of Open Studio on weekday afternoons:
*We will make exceptions for siblings who wish to attend sessions together.
- Kids (ages 8-13*) will meet from 1-3pm
- Teens (ages 13-18*) will meet from 3:30-5:30pm
Below, is a complete schedule of artist-led topics that will happen during Open Studio so you can plan out the remaining weeks of summer. We will also resume our all-age Open Studio hours on Saturdays from 9a-12pm.
Due to COVID, advanced registration and payment is required. We will also limit each session to 8 participants. We are offering three pass options and a summer specific scholarship for those in need:
- 1 visit: $7.50/person
- 10-Visits: $65/person
- Full Summer (25 visits): $150/person
