While our doors are temporarily closed in accordance with COVID-19 social distancing measures, Flushing Town Hall would like to share our global arts programming online. Flushing Town Hall’s dedicated Teaching Artists are offering online classes in the new series “FTH at HOME: Global Arts for Global Kids.” The series of arts education will run Tuesday through Friday, and culminate in an online family matinee performance on Saturday. Each day participants will enjoy short videos of music or dance and post-lesson activities will be available online HERE and live on Facebook page and Youtube channel each day at 2 PM EST. Participants are also encouraged to post short video clips of themselves learning on Facebook and tag FTH facebook page @flushingtownhall.
