Youth Art Education: Fall 2020

Virtual 4-Class Session for Ages 6–15 during September–December: 

$65 (RAM Family level members and above: $58.50) | Each class is one hour
Includes either a livestream lesson or pre-recorded lesson, fun worksheets (if needed to supplement the pre-recorded/livestream lesson), an interactive web portal (link will be emailed to you after you register and pay), and an Artist Tool Kit (includes all supplies needed for the 4-class session)

The difference between a livestream lesson and a pre-recorded lesson is that students CAN interact live with the instructor during a livestream lesson, while students CANNOT interact with the instructor during a pre-recorded lesson.

Livestream lessons will be recorded and posted in the interactive web portal for that class if you miss it.

If you have any questions, please contact Caryn Marsella at cmarsella@riversideartmuseum.org.

Prerequisites: You will need a gmail account to access our interactive web portal to get to the virtual lessons, worksheets, classroom forums, art gallery where you can post your artwork, and more. You will also need Zoom for all livestream virtual classes.

Special prices for Preschool (Ages 3–5) and workshops; see below for details.
