Free As A Bird


March 16-20, 2020

Hey parents! In response to the challenge of all your kiddos suddenly hanging around the house, we’re offering a flash (remember flash parties?) art camp to help keep everyone creative and engaged. Since the governor says it is not a good idea to gather, we’re doing it live on Facebook every weekday from 2-2:30pm until we’re back to our normals. The library of daily FREE AS A BIRD video classes easily accessible below.

Anne Cornell, our Pomerene Community Studio Artist and the Ohio Arts Council TeachArtsOhio artist at Keene Elementary—whose genius lies in spinning ideas out of common stuff laying around the house—will lead the camp. #TuneInAt2.
