Art educators will assist you with various watercolor techniques, then put your imagination to work as you cut apart your watercolor painting and use your painted paper to create a collage. Experiment with printmaking by creating your own collograph. Participants will glue various found objects to a backing and then print it over and over in exciting new colors. Make your own stencil, trace it and bring it to life with various colors of chalk pastel.

Come get wired, as we learn about the works of artist Elizabeth Barrien!! Twist and twirl wire into spectacular sculptural forms! Children and families are invited to make three-dimensional and relief sculptures in the shape of your favorite animal. Coil and wind your wire from a spool as you watch it grow into a tree, add some colorful leaves using buttons. Don’t want to make an animal or plant… go abstract as you create organic forms, stretching cloth and painting them.
