An art afternoon will give extra time at home a fun spin.
Whether it’s a cold, or a bout with Covid – if you’ve had a stretch of sickness in your home, you know the days get long.
Studio 5 creative guest and kids art instructor, Laurie White, offers a way to take that time back – at least a little bit. She came to Studio 5 with three ways to make a stay-at-home sick day productive and enjoyable by staging an at-home art experience.
