Is It Really Free? What’s the Catch?
Seriously, it’s really free! No catch. I just want to provide a great resource and help our community during difficult circumstances.

I Want to Donate. How Can I Contribute?
There have been many who have requested a donation link. You can donate through this link if you feel it in your heart to do so:

I plan to use some of the proceeds to help families in need in my community and order groceries for those who may be high risk and unable to venture out.
Our supply lists are also Amazon affiliate links. It doesn’t cost you any extra and we receive a small contribution to help us keep doing what we’re doing. 

When do classes start? What time?
Classes begin on Monday, March 16th. You will be able to view our videos at any time after we post them. We record in the morning, edit in the afternoon, and then it takes most of the afternoon and evening for it to upload to YouTube, so you may be participating in lessons the morning after it posts on YouTube.

LESSON PLANS:

Our first four lessons will require items most people have at home already. You might have many of the supplies at home for all of the lessons. I recommend purchasing supplies you do not already have at home.  Keep in mind, Amazon may be taking longer than the usual 2 days to ship items, so please order as soon as possible to ensure you have supplies on hand for our art lessons.  Most lessons are suitable for a wide age range, including adults! You can share supplies with your children and create together. My goal is to use a lot of these supplies up within the next few weeks, but if you have supplies left over, it’s great to make art anytime! And, summer break will be here before you know it. 😉  Feel free to join us for all the lessons or some. If you are on a budget, you can substitute with items you have at home already or pick and choose the classes you participate in. Keep in mind, depending on how many children you have participating, these supplies are enough to last far past these classes.

Here is the class schedule along with the supplies needed for each day.
