*Online* Thurber House Pen and Tell It! — 2/3 Graders

November 1, 2020 12:30 pm @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Sunday, repeating until November 22, 2020 12:00 am

It’s fall, which means it’s time for Pen and Tell It! We’ve moved online, but that means we get to offer more classes and from teachers who may not be in Ohio. This is a season of activities you don’t want to miss. Each Sunday, you will have the opportunity to try your hand at new ideas, skills, funny prompts, and all from the comfort of your home! You’ll get your Pen and Tell It!-in-a-bag with any supplies you need before class so you won’t miss out on anything.

Please email Meg Brown at [email protected] with any questions.

Pen and Tell It! workshops are for 2nd-8th graders. For more information or to explore workshops for all age groups, visit: https://www.thurberhouse.org/pen-tell-it
