Since there are four ways to join, Michaels has made this the most accessible Camp Creatology yet, allowing any time or place. Free live instructor-led classes will be available every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from June 19 through July 14, both online and in-store at all Michaels shops. No registration was needed. Online on-demand courses will also be offered for less regimented schedules and detailed textual and visual guidelines for self-directed creativity at the crafter's speed.


Every week, four new project kits are introduced, each with a different theme and complete with everything required to make three crafts, an activity guide and instructions, additional supplies to share the fun with friends and siblings, and even a few surprises. 


Amid a continuous digital revolution, Michaels is investing in courses, training, and experiences to be where all creatives go to get inspired, learn, shop, and create. As a part of that shift, Michaels released a freshly re-platformed website earlier this year to streamline the purchasing process and inspire and power classes like Camp Creatology.
