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.
January 18 | Winter Birch Tree Painting
Young artists will dive into the wonderful world of mixed media using tempera paints and collage materials to create a frosty forest landscape on a canvas panel.
February 8 | Open Studio: Valentines Cards
Celebrate Valentine’s Day early this year! Young artists will have access to a wide array of craft materials, decorative papers, drawing supplies, and embellishments to create a custom card their heart desires.

Inspired by the coming of spring, young artists will look to nature as a starting point for this fun collage activity. Little ones will work with strips of paper, decorative birds, and natural materials to construct a realistic or fanciful bird’s nest.
April 18 | Marvelous Monoprint Rainstorms
This month were bringing out the printing press to create a stormy scenic print on artist-quality printmaking paper. Participants will embellish their printed image using a resist technique to create a masterpiece inspired by April showers.
