Welcome to ArtsView Online! We are excited to provide a variety of camps, classes, and workshops in an online format. 

Registration is now open! We will add new classes throughout the summer!

Some of these offerings will be live classes using Zoom, Google Meet and/or Google Classrooms, while other offerings will be a pre-recorded series, or a combination of both formats. All will provide feedback by instructors or ArtsView staff. Since we are all under a stay-at-home order, we will need to be creative with costumes and props should those be needed for a class - theatre is about ingenuity and creativity! 

We are working hard to keep prices low for these camps and classes. If your family is dealing with financial constraints, please let us know.

Some classes may need you to gather supplies ahead of time and we will note that below. You may already have some of those items or similar items at your home, so please feel free to use those. 

Online requirements: internet access, a way to view and/or record online, an email address for communication, and possibly a gmail account for Google Meet usage. A class may require a specific program download, but those programs will be free of cost to the user. 

Participants will need to fill out an online Student Packet found here and return it to ArtsView via email if a regular student packet has not been completed for 2020. We will not be offering refunds for these online camps, classes, or workshops. 

If you have questions, please contact us via email or phone (903-236-7535).
