More on our Saturday Series:

As we head into an uncertain winter, Compass Arts is pivoting and growing our online program offerings to meet the community’s need for social connection, creativity, empowerment, and self expression through the arts. The Saturday Series will be a 10 week series of online arts workshops and performances held during the coldest days of winter, from January 16th - March 20th.

Each week's program will feature a different artist who will teach a workshop in one of a variety of arts modalities, including visual arts, dance, poetry, and music. Most weeks will have a targeted age range but will be open to those beyond the specified age range. All of the workshops will be what we call "materials light," meaning there will be very few, if any, materials needed to participate in the workshops effectively. If participants are asked to bring anything, it will typically be paper and pencil and occasionally other materials that are often found around a home. We want to create as few barriers to participation as possible while still inspiring creativity and self expression.

In order to make the workshops in this Saturday Series available to a broad and diverse audience, we are using a sliding scale payment model, which means you choose how much you pay. Registering for free or at the discounted pricing is like receiving a scholarship, while paying the regular pricing helps us cover the true cost of the workshop and makes our sliding scale possible. Thank you for considering your situation and resources as you choose your registration level.
