One-day workshops for youth and adults engage participants in a specific media or process, and encourage artistic development and self-expression.


Work together in a collaborative art-making experience! Multi-generational workshops are a wonderful way for families to spend quality and creative time together. Children—along with a favorite grownup!—explore art and nature, develop a meaningful bond and create memories to last a lifetime.

The registration fee for Family Workshops includes one adult with one child; children must be accompanied by an adult. All ages programs are listed at a per person rate.
