Rewired Summer Series

Online workshops: find friends & make art!

Summer is looking well, different this year. At Spy Hop we are doing our best to not let Corona ruin connection, creativity, and fun! We are harnessing the power of the internet and creativity to offer students ages 9-14 weekly FREE online live workshops in film, music and design. These workshops bring together kids in an online format with professional artist mentors to connect, find new friends, and make art! 

To provide a camp-like experience through the computer, workshops follow a Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday format to provide some structure to the day and engage students for a longer period of time. Live zoom workshops begin at 10 AM. With equal parts project-based instruction, good old-fashioned silliness, and lots of encouragement, students will work on projects online and on their own during independent work-time. Each weekly workshop series will end on Thursdays with a live zoom class to share projects and further inspire creativity. 

All classes are offered in Mountain Standard Time. Specific instructions for how to join the class will be emailed to the participants an hour prior to the start of class.
