Interested in trying out watercolor painting? How about taiko drumming? Looking for fun, creatively stimulating activities for small children? Do you know an older adult looking for ways to keep their bodies and minds active? Our new Virtual Mini-Lessons (VML) page has something for everyone!

Created in response to the COVID-19 crisis and its impact on traditional spaces for arts learning and education, VML grants provided funding and training to support Arizona teaching artists in the creation of virtual lessons for diverse learners. Grants were awarded to teaching artists throughout Arizona, working in all artistic disciplines. The lesson videos they created are presented free of charge to support educators, parents, and caregivers.

You can dive into the full catalog of over 100 videos on our Virtual Mini-Lessons (VML) page or our YouTube Channel! (And don’t forget to subscribe and share your favorites!)
