As our schools and teachers prepare for the long closure mandated by Governor Inslee, Two Waters would like to offer some suggested educational art projects that students and parents can do at home. While we will miss seeing all our students, we hope everyone stays safe and healthy during these crazy times. There couldn’t be a better time to learn a new skill, work on a project you have been putting off, or just spend some quality time with family. We will all get through this together!
Below are some activities available online throughout our art community. Many organizations are eager to continue arts education while our nation continues to promote healthy distancing. We will continue to post as more ideas become available.

We will be adding more throughout the school closures. Feel free to reach out to us if there are any questions or suggestions for future projects.
