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 Monday, Wednesday, and Friday  June-August for kids in age ranges K-2/the Littles, Grades 3-6, and Tweens & Teens. We’ll also offer several day camps. Craft Camp: The Biodiversity of Bugs is June 26-30, and we’ll be making a community project for the July 4th parade. Our Free Arts Camp: Making Your Mark is July 24-28. Join us for a Performing Arts Camp August 14-18 and explore your voice & creativity at our Alley Stage.

Classes and camps are either 9 am-noon or 1-4 pm and will be focused on a fun and educational craft, with time for exploring, and simple snack. If you’re joining us for a camp, those are 5-day experiences, and we look forward to seeing you all five days. If you have questions, please contact the Shake Rag Alley staff at (608) 987-3292.  

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 for their financial support. Interested in teaching for our Youth Program? Reach out to Christina Kubasta at or fill out a Youth Workshop Proposal.
