Online Summer Arts, STEAM, & Music Classes @ Virtual Classes
Jun 29 – Aug 28 all-day
Online Summer Arts, STEAM, & Music Classes @ Virtual Classes |  |  |

The Rye Arts Center has moved its award-winning classes online! Classes include painting, drawing, coding, animation, sewing, model-making, ceramics, engineering, game design, Manga, music, theater, and more.

Classes run Monday – Friday. Students can repeat classes week after week to build upon the skills they learn. Class sizes are small allowing instructors to adapt to the needs of each individual student.

The week-by-week model is perfect for families who need a little flexibility as they adapt to changing summer plans. The daily schedule of classes is built so that students can fill their days with creative activities or enjoy a single class each day.

While The RAC’s classes are open to EVERYONE, you can become a member to receive a 10% discount for most classes.

Children will be further engaged with independent activities they do between sessions, with time on Thursdays to share outcomes with the group.

Sign up for an individual week or all 6 to stay active in nature through mid-August. A certificate of completion will be sent to all participants.

Schedule: Mondays & Thursdays, 9:30-10:30 am
