There is an artist in all of us! If you agree with Picasso and like to experiment with art supplies, then this class is for you. Young art students will be inspired by using a variety of materials and mediums such as acrylic paint, tempera, oil pastels, dry pastels, ink. They will have the freedom to apply new techniques, try different styles, and to think outside the box. We will explore the process of painting, drawing and printmaking. We will have fun achieving textures and effects on interesting surfaces. Children will delve into this creative mind set with enthusiasm and leave with unique artwork and a happy heart! All material fees are included. Recommended for ages 8 - 12.
