We’re sorry we can’t have art programs like we used to, BUT we’re totally still having monthly arts & crafts!

Every month we’re doing a tween & teen Grab & Go craft.  We give you most of the supplies, instructions, and a book related to the topic.

Check out our Event Calendar for more details and registration!  Missed the program?  Scroll down for past month’s activities!

Things are still weird right?  Hopefully your school year is going okay, but if you’re in need of something new we’ve got you!

  • Grab & Go craft kits (tween & teen) register via our Event Calendar for a free craft material kit.  Kits include: instructions, most items to make the craft, and a book related to the craft.  Kits may be picked up in person or via curbside.

What’s UP in the South Shore?!
