Family Art Fun in the Grove demonstrates to you and your child(ren) how creativity can spark conversation and engage all ages. Family Art Fun in the Grove is an opportunity for parents, grandparents, or adults to connect and create memories with a child!

This class is for families of all ages and creative levels. Each family member receives a kit of supplies and guidance from an instructor to create masterpieces in a different art style each session. We will marvel at the beauty of the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore and create painted landscapes from up-cycled cardboard. The time commitment for the activity is about one hour. Families must sign up online. Each family must be accompanied by an adult who is over 18.

To ensure the safety of our students and Staff, we have implemented new procedures for our 2022 programs to mitigate the spread of COVID and still allow participants to have a wonderful time creating art.

  • Class sizes will be limited to 12 persons for indoor programs and 16 outdoor programs
  • All students who have symptoms of respiratory or gastrointestinal infections, such as cough, fever, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea, should stay home and not attend class.
  • Students and Staff will wash and sanitize hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Staff will sanitize common areas and touch surfaces regularly.
  • We have optimized our indoor ventilation system to reduce the risk of germs and contaminants spreading through the air.
  • If Leelanau County COVID-related cases are designated high risk, students and visitors must wear a face mask to prevent transmission.

To keep pace with the evolving conditions related to the pandemic, Staff will inform the GAAC’s new policies or procedures before the start of the course.
