Side Street Studio Arts is bringing our lab arts programming for teens to your home! Starting, June 4, every Thursday you can join our amazing artist-educators live right here: for some in-home creativity.

Classes will last from 30 to 70 minutes, and you will be able to send your questions or comments to be addressed during the session.

Virtual Drop-In Lab for Teens sessions will be suitable for the whole family, but be focused on the older of our young artists, with projects designed for grades 7-12. Sessions will feature activities that can use supplies from around your house OR from our Brown Bag Art Kits. To request a free Brown Bag Art Kit, visit us here: All ages are welcome.

All Virtual Drop-In sessions are free and open to the public, but we welcome your tax-deductible donation of any size via our donation page, here: Suggested donation $5.
