Altitude Kids – Free Kids Art Class

Please bring your littles to help us make art and celebrate national STEAM Day on November 8th at YWCA St. Paul. YWCA St. Paul, along with Free Arts / Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Twin Cities is hosting a kids’ faux stained-glass art class in support of STEAM Day.

In collaboration with an art project, Altitude, commissioned by Mayor Carter, this stained-glass art project reflects the piece created by The Milligan Studio which YWCA St. Paul has been selected to highlight and share with the St. Paul community. Visit the Milligan Studio to view Altitude, along with other pieces they have crafted.

STEaM, which stands for Science, Technology Engineering, Art and Mathematics, is a national education initiative to support fun activities, exploration and academic rigor for kids in all of these very important areas that continue to see growing demand in the global job market.
