About the Top Classes and Enrichment Programs in the 2022 Parents Press Readers Choice Poll

The Best of Parents Press was born with the idea to give readers in the Bay Area a chance to voice their opinions on their personal ‘Family Favorite’ choices for Art Classes and everything kids and family. The program has evolved over the years, and hopefully, with a lot of input from our readers, we’ve been able to make it better and better.

The voting for Contra Costa County Art Classes is conducted in a two-round process. The first round occurs in the month of March and early April with open write-in nominations for parent’s favorite Art Classes taking place. 

As the nomination period for Art Classes in the first round comes to a close, shortly after, the second round opens with the top nominee Art Classes being selectable in this final round of voting during the month of April and May. Write-in nominations are no longer available, and voters are open to select their favorite Art Classes from among those that are listed.

The final winners are posted in the August issue of Parents Press

We hope you enjoy! And we hope you come back to vote next year!
