Your little pumpkin is going to love this morning of painting on an unconventional canvas. Young artists will choose a mini pumpkin and paint it with an array of vibrant (and kid friendly) tempera paints.
November 16 | Swirl, Sparkle and Shine
Get ready for a wintery blast of creative play! This month “wittle” artists will work with cool tints and shades of blue and white tempera paints to create a seasonal abstract masterpiece complete with shimmery decorative details.
December 21 | Textured Trees
Just in time for the holiday season, we will take inspiration from snowy forest scenes to create a mini tree sculpture. Your little one will create a simple 3D tree from cardboard then decorate it with paints, pompoms, yarn, and beads.
