Youth Program

Creative fun for kids of all ages has been a focus of Shake Rag Alley programming since its founding in 2004. Children’s classes began that year as an after-school arts and crafts program and continue to expose participants to new skills and creative engagement every June-August.

For 2023, we’ll be offering classes June-August for kids in age ranges K-2, grades 3-6, and Tweens & Teens. In addition to workshops, we’ll offer several camps, including our popular Free Arts Camp in July. 

If you’d be interested in teaching for our Youth Program, you can reach out to Christina Kubasta, director of education, at You can also submit a Youth Workshop Proposal.

Many thanks to the artists of all ages who help make Shake Rag Alley such a magical place. And thank you to the Mineral Point Community Chest and United Fund of Iowa County for their financial support.
