There is so much going on at the museum this year—a new director, new exhibitions and a new look, but I am most excited about the MET’s amazing summer art classes! This winter was such a strange time to be planning a camp—there were so many uncertainties about what lay ahead. We were certain that it was important to carry on the MET’s wonderful camp tradition, so we are excited to offer free, online classes this summer! We are continuing to offer the highest quality instruction from local artists, and many of your favorite teaching artists are back, along with some new faces. We have a wide variety of classes lined up for ages six-adult, ranging from drawing and painting to fiber arts, chia pets and Japanese calligraphy! The free classes will be offered online and will meet over Zoom. Materials will be supplied by the museum. In addition to our online classes, we are offering in-person weaving in collaboration with Luz Handwoven downtown. In this hands-on class, learners experience the entire process, from warping the loom to weaving to finishing a piece. Our classes run the 2nd week of June through the end of July. You can find links to our class descriptions and registration form on the education page of our website. I’m looking forward to a creative summer—how about you?
