Art Activities:
Our art activities can be tailored to your child’s favorite medium, colour, area of interest etc. or select from one of the suggested activities below:

Creative Collages
Explore the world of collage and mixed media by creating a one of a kind artwork on a canvas panel. Young artists will use a collection of decorative papers, embellishments, and acrylic paints to create a unique fusion of images and colours.

Exploring Texture
Take painting to the next level with a crash course in colour mixing, abstract expressionism, and texture mediums.  Works will be created with a variety of acrylic paints and mediums on a canvas panel.

Marbling Madness
Create a collection of vibrant art cards to display or share with your friends. Party goers will learn a simple shaving cream marbling technique using high flow acrylic paints.
