Upcoming Classes & Workshops 

As we start up this year’s classes and workshops, we would like to thank all who continue to participate. With the additional space in our annex, we are able to continue offering classes while following social distancing guidelines. As we continue to plan our 2021 schedule, we are looking at possibilities for new and exciting opportunities including stained glass and floral arranging workshops.

Events

COVID-19 brought with it many challenges to our event schedule this year. Having closed briefly in the initial stages of the pandemic, we are now open and continue to operate at reduced hours (Thursday – Saturday, 10 am-2 pm). With the safety measures of masks and social distancing, many of our events and activities are taking place with only minor modifications. We’ve been challenged to embrace our own “spirit of creativity” this year, and we continue to experiment with new approaches to sharing the arts.

You might enjoy:

  • Visiting an art exhibit – either in person or virtually (see below).
  • Taking a class – in person but limited to 6 participants
  • Learning to play an instrument – in person or virtual
  • Shopping in the Gallery Gift Shop – in person

We expect to see Concerts and Theater return to the Bowery Stage in late spring/early summer. Please check back frequently for updates on activities and special events!
