Your choice of art activity from below:

Mixed-Media Mania – This fun and funky mixed-media-on-canvas workshop will have children expanding their creative horizons while exploring a variety of materials. Each child will create a one-of-a-kind work of art using stencils, decorative paper, acrylic medium, and paint. Approaches currently used by artists working in mixed-media will be introduced to children, who will combine painting, drawing, and collage techniques. All materials and supplies are included. Final works can easily be framed for a professional, looking end result, as standard frame sizes have been used for backing materials.

Explore Your Inner Artist with Playful Painting – Roll up your sleeves and explore your inner artist in this acrylic, painting-on-canvas class. Children will be introduced to the foundation skills of working with this versatile and popular medium. In addition to painting, children will also have the opportunity to incorporate the use of stencils and layering. Everyone will have a chance to let go and create a unique and playful work of art. All materials and supplies are included. Final works can be stretched onto stretcher bars at home later for a professional- looking end result.
