AWESTRUC = Art With Elders Shared Through Resourcefully Using Computers

Our experienced professional artists provide instruction and build community through online interactive art classes. Classes are scheduled for 2-hour sessions throughout the week. Art students from beginner to advanced levels can join us to take their creative abilities to the next level with the guidance of an instructor and support from classmates. Students will need a computer, tablet, or smart phone for visual and audio access to the interactive platform. Students may call in with any phone to join in with audio only.
