Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the Brooks is currently only offering virtual group visits via Zoom and Teams. Classes are 40 minutes in length and are available Monday through Friday. All virtual visits must be booked a minimum of two weeks in advance and require at least 10 participants. This is a free program open to all ages and types of groups.
Virtual group visits can include an optional art making activity. Please note that if you choose to include art making in the program only basic supplies are needed such as paper, crayons, glue, and scissors. It is the responsibility of the participants to provide their own supplies.
