COVID-19 Info: 

We are offering in-person classes at this time and are following all CDC Guidelines in order to protect our staff, students and community. If you come into our building please wear a mask. 

We realize that not everyone is comfortable coming out in public still, so we are also offering on-line demo classes. Participants can register for a class, pick up all materials here at KAFCC and bring them home to create in their own space and at their own pace.

HOMESCHOOL ART CLASSES

KAFCC is proud to offer Homeschool Art classes! For the 2020-2021 School Year we have changed some of the formatting of our current program and have added additional classes for our Homeschool Artists! Mondays and Wednesdays we are offering History + Process. In these classes students will learn the History of Art based on a monthly theme and then get to make a project based on the history that they learned about in class. These classes are offered for 6-15 year-olds and take place from 10:30am-12:00pm.

We are also offering S.T.E.A.M. classes and Clay classes on alternating Thursdays throughout the school year. S.T.E.A.M classes offer participants the chance to solve problems creatively and make some really cool things! Our clay classes are a new project every class where kids will get to learn the processes of working with clay. We all know kids love clay!
