Kids’ College is a unique opportunity for children to expand their artistic and scientific horizons in a safe and nurturing environment. All classes, taught by trained teaching artists, are held in Carnegie Hall. Children can take classes in pottery, origami, baking, basket weaving, cooking, fashion, rockets, music, archeology, journalism, tie-dye, sign language, and more.

Cost of Kids’ College is $135 per session. There are two sessions each day, morning and afternoon. Children can choose to take up to five different arts and science classes per day. Scholarships are available thanks to United Way of Greenbrier Valley and generous individual donors.
