Artist Toolbox – These classes taught by professionals in their field and are for teens, adults, and seniors who want to grow as artists.
Family Arts – These classes are designed to be enjoyed together as a family! They can be taken as an individual, but these activities, including painting, song creation, learning about world music, and so much more are designed for children and their families to come together and create art and memories together. Only one registration is required per family, and families do not have to reside in the same household. Using the option for break-out rooms in Zoom, families can connect through the class virtually.
Explore Multicultural Arts –These workshops are created to expose our CFCArts community to cultural diversity in the arts.
