Take Art Classes from Home with West Windsor Arts Council

Spring 2020 Session Now Online

This spring, you’ll be able to enjoy many of the award-winning arts classes offered by West Windsor Arts Council right from home. With the arts center temporarily closed to limit the spread of COVID-19, its teaching artists quickly adapted their curriculum to an online format. Here are just some of the classes and workshops to be offered online:

Adult Classes:

Youth Classes:

West Windsor Arts Council piloted the program by holding its popular Spring Break Camp online, says Kirsten Sanford, education manager of the arts center. “It’s been going great. Parents and kids both appreciate having structured activity while the kids are out of school this week, and it gave us a chance to adjust to teaching on Zoom. 

“Thanks to our teaching artists thinking through all the variables, such as making sure everyone had the right supplies and alternatives, the transition was pretty seamless.”

To ensure a secure online experience, every Zoom class is password protected. “Of course we look forward to being back in the arts center, and seeing our students in person, but we needed to find the best way to engage with our community in meaningful, educational and personally fulfilling ways,” explains Aylin Green, executive director.

Adds one parent: “My child is really enjoying the class, including seeing classmates! (Teaching artist) Natalie has been doing a great job teaching via Zoom, just as she does in person.” 

West Windsor Arts Council is known throughout the region for its exceptional classes in the visual, literary and performing arts. A limited number of scholarships are available for these classes for all ages.
