Create. Collaborate. Connect. 


During this challenging time for our community, we have lost the normal connections of work, school, social gatherings, and other activities that we may have taken for granted before this crisis, and we know that many people are looking for ways to connect.
So we would like to bring Glen Echo Park to you as much as we can through live streaming and recorded classes, virtual exhibitions, online dance and music events and videos, activity downloads for kids, and Facebook Live events.
Classes at the Yellow Barn Studio, Washington Conservatory of Music, Photoworks, and Adventure Theatre MTC have already begun online, with rave reviews. (Click on the link in the Classes section below to read what some students are saying about live streamed classes!)
We are just getting started, and we will continue to add content and links over the coming weeks, so check back frequently.
