This summer, the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) is offering an assortment of virtual art classes for both youth and adults in a range of media. Registration for these classes opens Friday, May 29, at 1 p.m. at toledomuseum.org/education/classes.

“Even though COVID-19 has temporarily paused on-site art classes at TMA, the Museum is continuing to integrate art into the lives of people through instruction in the visual arts,” said Mike Deetsch, the Emma Leah Bippus director of education and engagement. “The staff at the Museum has creatively reformatted the structure of a variety of classes to fit a virtual environment.”

Each week-long art class includes a series of prerecorded videos, an hour-long livestream session with the instructor and a materials kit. Registration costs range between $15 and $50 depending on the class and whether the participant is a Museum member.

Session 1 will take place the week of June 22; registration for this session closes Thursday, June 18. The registration deadline for Session 2, which will take place the week of June 29, is Thursday, June 25. Visit toledomuseum.org/education/classes to register.

“Providing at-home art instruction is new territory for our staff,” added Deetsch. “We’re looking forward to these two initial art class sessions and expanding the Museum’s virtual art class program throughout the summer.”

Due to the nature of these virtual art classes, neither the teen work study nor scholarships are applicable towards the cost of registration. For questions or assistance with online registration, please call (419) 255-8000 ext. 7406.
