Combined Program (2 hours)
Mix-n-match any of the artmaking workshops with any of the guided tours for a 2-hour combined program to meet your teaching and students’ learning needs. Staff will connect the theme of the guided tour to the artmaking workshop for one cohesive and holistic experience.

Note: In an open studio environment, creativity can be a messy process!  Please ask students to wear comfortable clothing that is easily washable. Aprons are not provided.
