Hands-on skills...

...for your off-screen time!

Join together with like minds online this summer to explore hands-on historical inspiration and fill your time with the fun of real skills. Short-and-sweet programs on Zoom are available for elementary through high school students. Choose from a menu of exploratory workshops and performance programs!

One-time classes are tuition-free, and ongoing programs are offered on a pay-as-able model. We don’t want anything to keep you from these inspiring activities!

Class sizes are limited to ten or fewer students. Register today to claim your spot.

Learning workshops

Each class introduces a historical art form from the Medieval, Renaissance, or Baroque eras, with images from the period and up-close demonstrations by our skilled teachers. Participants try out each technique for themselves, discovering a true ages-old pastime. Most classes require no special background. Some are for experienced vocal and instrumental music students who want to learn something new. We hope to inspire students to tinker with our take-home project tools, but these classes don't assign homework.

Introductory sessions (free!) offer a quick, fun way to try something new. If you enjoy the topic, you can come back to explore further in an ongoing series.

Series classes (flexible tuition!) of several short weekly meetings give students the chance to develop real skill and knowledge—creative tools they can rely on in their offscreen time, just like people in the past.

Performance projects

Performance projects (flexible tuition!) bring students together to enjoy one another's company and receive coaching from specialists, whether in spoken word, singing, or instrumental music. You'll practice at home and record your individual performance, contributing to a final project that will serve as a beautiful, fun souvenir of this time.
