The Lost River Educational Foundation will be offering two types of classes in the arts and crafts during this season: Video And Live.


Video. Video classes are pre-recoded and can be taken at any time. The classes are FREE, sponsored by a grant from the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation.  Materials for the classes can be picked up at the Artists Marketplace any Saturday or Sunday or mailed to you. These classes are listed below as TBD-To Be Determined, since you can take that class at any time at your own pace, now through October.


Live. Live classes are the traditional classes offered by the Foundation, taking place on a specific date or dates with an instructor. There may be a fee for these classes.


Several classes are planned for the season. Please check back as classes are added or see our newsletter for updates.
