Pocosin Arts offers virtual at-home craft classes for youth and adults

Have you ever wanted to learn a new skill such as making jewelry with copper or silver, drawing a landscape or hand-building a ceramic cup? Pocosin Arts has a solution for you this summer and fall with fun and engaging at-home craft classes. Simply turn on your computer to join fellow participants and a Pocosin Arts instructor will show you how. New at-home classes are now available for kids and adults and are open to all skill levels.

On August 25, Pocosin Arts began hosting at-home “Art After School” classes. Participants will receive access to weekly fun and interactive instructional video and a materials kit. An optional meet and greet virtual Zoom session with the instructors and fellow participants will begin each five-week session. Videos are released every Tuesday for five consecutive weeks. Students are encouraged to send in images to show off their weekly projects for inclusion in the following weeks’ video. The first class topics include “Exploring Nature Through Art” for ages 6-9 and “Dive Into 2-D Design & Create a Visual Journal” for ages 10-18. Additional topics will be offered throughout the school year.
