Greensboro, NC.......GreenHill is introducing new family programming featuring fun and engaging theme-based activities, beginning September 23 through December 18.

Broadcast LIVE from GreenHill's Studios, weekly arts experiences will cater to pre-k through 5th grade levels. MasterPiece Fridays for pre-schoolers offer: All About Me, All About Art, My Imagination and My Natural World activities in 4-week sessions.

A re-imagined Hands on at Home series for 1st through 5th graders offers after-school adventures and creative explorations inspired by contemporary GreenHill artists such as Heather Gordon and JEKS. Activities include: murals, city-scapes, egg-carton animal portraits, leaf-printing and so much more!

“Always innovating with new approaches to arts education, our team has created an exciting new series for pre-school and after-school fun. At the center of it all are the connections we make to North Carolina artists who help us see the world in new ways," explained GreenHill Director, Barbara Richter. "At a time of social distancing, 'artventures' are more vital than ever."

Advance enrollment for both programs is required for GreenHill members and non-members. Artboxes with materials for a four-week session – or all-in-one boxes for three, four-week sessions, can be purchased in advance for pick-up. GreenHill will also ship artboxes anywhere in the continental US.
