These workshops are designed to be enjoyed together with friends and family of all ages. The fourth Saturday of every month, a 90 minute workshop will focus on topics such as comic drawing, trying your hand at the pottery wheel and much more. Workshops are led by our teaching artists or science educators and offer a great introduction to the LASC or a unique way to entertain family and friends. Drop-ins welcome if space allows. Come early or stay late for a planetarium show and take in our art exhibits to complete the day.
