Surprise Art

For Houston County Residents

Houston County Youth are invited to flex their creativity muscles during this unique 8-week art program. Each participant will get an art kit featuring all of the ingredients they need to design weekly surprise art projects. From creating on wooden coasters and postcards and constructing with model magic and yarn students will love the opportunity to explore with a variety of materials and learn new art techniques and terminology. This flexible program invites students to participate in a way that works best for them and their families. Ways to participate:


  • Live Zoom Class- create in real-time over Zoom with other Houston Co. Youth on Wednesdays, Sept. 30-Nov. 18, 4-5pm.
  • Recorded Class- watch & create along with recordings of classes posted within a week after the live class.
  • Unplugged- Each week you will receive an email with a project sheet that lists materials and directions for an art activity to complete using the kit provided.


Ages: 7-12

Fee: FREE for Houston County Residents, but registration required (it is ideal if students have a set of washable markers & scissors)  Instructor: Lisa Douglas of Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts


These virtual programs are a collaboration with Caledonia Public Library, Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts, and Mainspring. Due to COVID-19, this collaborative group had to cancel in-person creative classes previously scheduled for spring and summer 2020. However, thanks to the dedication of funders and partners, we are excited to bring virtual creative and cultural classes to you at home! All of these events are FREE to Houston County residents, but registration is required. This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities.
