At Virtual Art Camp, kids learn through LIVE INTERACTION with each other and their teacher on the video platform Zoom. Classes are open to kids ANYWHERE!
 
Class sizes are small (4-6 kids/each), allowing campers to chat freely and receive high quality, individualized instruction. Classes culminate in a final presentation for family and friends live streamed on Zoom! Click here to view available classes and register. Note that if a class does not meet minimum enrollment, it will move to the following week. 
 
Classes include 30 minutes of “Zoom hang time” after each lesson!
