We are partnering with Western New York Book Arts to host 8 weeks of FREE book art classes!

Classes Start on Friday, October 2, 5-6:30PM and will take place for 8 weeks every Friday at the same time. 

The program runs for 8 weeks, with socially distanced classes held each Friday on the lawn of the Carnegie Art Center. Class size is limited, so please register in advance. Classes may be weather dependent, and we will notify studnets in the event of a rain date. Once November rolls around, classes may move indoors or online…we’ll keep students posted!

Classes are geared towards students age 8+, and younger children & families are welcome. Together, we’ll create origami and hand-stitched books, prints & more in simple step-by-step in-person classes!
