Mi Casa es Su Casa – Virtual Art Classes
Mi Casa es Su Casa – Virtual Art Classes

Debuting Tuesday, May 5 and Tuesdays following, the AAC and Casa will be hosting on-line art classes aimed at kids 6 – 12 years of age. Each episode will be uploaded on Tuesdays at noon. These will be available to watch whenever it is convenient for you. The videos will stay up on the channel indefinitely.

Visit the channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CASAlethbridge

If you do not have an art kit, you can still experiment and work along with the weekly video class.

The Mi Casa es Su Casa Virtual Art Class program is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta.
