  Summer Registration Now Open!  

Summer at the studio will look a little different this year as we navigate the on-going need for community care. We are hosting a shorten six-week summer session for ages 8-18 beginning the week of July 6 through August 14. Camps will include topics ranging from sewing to digital art-making. We are currently planning to host these sessions in-person with the safety precautions below, but are also developing contingency plans to move online if needed.

Camps will occur from 1-3pm Monday-Friday. Topics are:
  • Pixel Perfect: July 6-10
  • Handstyles: July 13-17
  • Plastic Magic: July 20-24
  • Zine Dream: July 27-31
  • Printmake It!: August 3-7
In addition, we will have extended Open Studio time from 3:30-5:30pm during the week. We'll also resume our weekend hours beginning in June.

  Our Virtual Studio!  

Virtual Create & Connect sessions are continuing through May with a few adjustments. Sessions will now occur Tuesdays from 4-6pm, Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm, and Saturdays from 10:30a-12:30pm.

Here's what to expect:

Connection: We offer small group breakouts and intentional conversation so that you can get to know other participants. If you would like to connect with a group of family or friends, reserve a private room for up to 5 devices!

Creativity: During the session we crowdsource themes and challenges and select one of each to help spark creativity. This is a "use what you've got" experience and we encourage folks to get creative with their materials too. Participants have used lots of non-traditional materials from ketchup and fruit to reclaimed recyclables and nature-made supplies. 

Sessions are designed for all-ages, however we encourage littles under 8 to participate with a parent or older sibling. Registration is $5 for individual devices and $25 to reserve a private room for up to 5 devices.

  Take a Twin Cities Field Trip!  

 
Did you know the first volume of Color Me Courageous highlights some of your favorite Twin Cities landmarks?! You might not be able to visit them right now, but you CAN color them. Every week, we're sending out batches of books to keep our community #coloringthrucovid. You can purchase a copy for yourself or send a copy to a loved one. One of our recent buyers had the great idea of sending colored pages to family and friends who seem so far away right now.
