CREATE, VisArts’ outdoor summer art workshops in Rockville Town Square, will be held Thursdays, July 7-August 18, 5:30-8:15 PM. The workshops are fun for all ages and abilities – and free, thanks to continued support from the City of Rockville.


Online registration opens one week prior to each workshop and is required for participation. There are two or three sessions for each workshop. Please sign up for one session.

We’re committed to making art accessible to everyone and, because space is limited, please limit your registration to four workshops this summer. Children 6 and under must be supervised by an adult.

Checking In

Please check in for workshops 24 hours in advance and arrive on time. Otherwise, we may offer your space to someone else.

Staying Safe

We’re following CDC and local COVID-19 safety guidelines. Although we don’t require masks for outdoor workshops, we ask that you bring some in case we have to move inside.

Predicting the Weather

CREATE is held outdoors and workshops may be canceled if rain is forecasted. We’ll provide updates on weather-related changes by email and on our website.

Canceling Your Registration

Please let us know 24 hours in advance if you won’t be able to attend your workshop. Although we’ll miss you, we’d like to offer your space to someone else.

Metro & Parking

VisArts is at 155 Gibbs Street in Rockville Town Square. We’re three blocks from the Rockville Metro station on the Red Line. The Square offers three convenient garages (A, B, and C) with free parking for the first two hours.
