The start of school is just about 2 weeks away. This means parents are searching for afterschool activities to keep their kids busy and out of mischief.

According to a Facebook post made by Rare Bird Art Studio, they are hosting an after-school art program for students.

Rare Bird Art Studio also knows that many families are choosing the homeschool route due to the ongoing pandemic. Because of this, Rare Bird wanted to make sure there's also an art program offered for homeschooling families.

Classes will be held Mondays and Fridays. Monday's afternoon class will be from 4 to 6 pm starting on September 13th. Friday's class will be held in the mornings for families who are remote or homeschooling. Friday classes will be from 9:30 to 11:20 and get kick off on September 19th.
Each class will run for 6 consecutive weeks. The price for classes is $210 per 6-week session and includes all art supplies needed.

You can find more information about the after-school aft sessions by contacting the Rare Bird Art Studio Facebook page.
