Create Online with Kids at Art!
We are now offering LIVE interactive online art classes for our young artists!
Our classes are structured as closely as can be to our in-studio sessions, providing fun, focused projects for kids small and large. Adults may join as well. Kids will interact online through our Zoom Online Studio. At each session we will create new masterpieces – some based on famous artists and others that we’ll make up together!

Access Our Online Art Studio!
Use this button to access our Zoom Online Art Studio a few minutes before your session starts. You’ll enter our online waiting room, and an instructor will admit you once the class starts.Enter Online Studio!
We will greet each child as we admit them to our online studio. Wendy and James will be there as usual and will lead each session the way we do in the studio. Each class is interactive, and children will receive guidance the whole way through each project. Through video and audio sharing, we can look at all our young artists’ work as they watch our instruction for as creative an online experience as possible.
We will complete one project during each online session for ages 4 – 6. Some of the 7+ class projects might take two or more sessions. Since these will be mixed aged classes, the older children will be given options to take each project to a higher level.
Please be sure your child attends only an age-appropriate class as per our schedule. They will enjoy it more if it is on their level!
Below are the art supplies you’ll need for our online classes. If you don’t have some of them, no worries. We will make it work for you!Additional supplies can be ordered from blick.com, saxarts.com, or, of course, amazon.com.

Accessing the Online Studio
If this is the first time you’re using Zoom on your computer or tablet, give yourself 15 minutes before your first class to click on the “Enter Online Studio!” button above and follow the prompts to download the software.
Once Zoom is set up, joining an online art session is as easy as clicking on the “Enter Online Studio!” button about five minutes before the appropriate class time. Please make sure your Zoom name is easily recognizable and matches the name under your registration. Otherwise, it will be difficult to know who you are and we may not be able to admit you to the class. The Zoom name window should open the first time you use Zoom if you need to edit your name.
Because we hold all our classes in the same online studio, you can access the studio the same way for every class.
Once the session begins, you will be able to see the instructor on the screen as well as all the other students in the session. The instructor may mute participants’ microphones to prevent distractions and background noise (from pets, phones, etc.), but you will always be able to unmute yourself to ask questions.
