I think we can all agree that this is a weird time in the world. We're home, we're having a lot of feelings, we're creating new flow in our lives, we're all doing the best we can. I would love to help bring routine and a little color to your week.

 

Join me for Crafternoons on Zoom! with Alex Makes Art

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon from 4pm-6pm EST

I will be using everyday household items to create projects that are modifiable for all ages. Streaming is an entirely new endeavor for me so please be patient with the process. This is meant to be flexible, free flowing and fun!
