Pirates and Fairies ART-ventures (Grades K-4)
Sail the high seas on a fantastical art adventure through a world of pirates and fairies, princesses, sea monsters and talking parrots! Children will really get into character, donning handcrafted pirate hats and swords or fairy tiaras and wings. Create wooden rowboats and set out on a search for buried treasure, then create gem-studded treasure chests to hide the riches! Paint ceramic castle banks and sculpt clay dragons to guard them. Design pirate flags or princess hats. Paint froggy note holders—perhaps they'll turn into prince! Draw silly sea monsters and design enchanting stenciled t-shirts! Pirates and Fairies explore painting, beading, fabric, clay art and more. Humorous stories are included each week, as well as surprises and laughter. Don't miss these fun and fantasy-filled workshops!
Spread Your Wings and Roar ART-ventures (Grades K-5)
This all-new art-rageous program is truly like a trip to the zoo. Design Stuffed Teddy Bears, create Owl Paintings on canvas, and sculpt Clay Peacocks with zany feathers. Color real Rubber Duckies, paint Ceramic Bunny Banks, and make Wooden Animal Puzzles in the style of Oaxacan alebrijes. Even travel back in time to paint Dancing Dinosaurs with watercolors. We’ll also pop into the zoo food court to create Mixed Media Sandwich Collages and Pasta Relief Clay Tiles and visit the photo booth to make Cardboard Mustache Masks and draw Minion Self-Portraits. On the way out, we’ll stop at the gift shop to design Sticker Resist T-shirts, decoupage large Paper Mache Letters, and build wacky Mix-and-Match Character Blocks. Art-explorers experience painting, drawing, sculpting, fabric design, decoupage, collage, and more. A trip to the zoo that you’ll never forget! Art explorers bring home exciting handmade souvenirs each week.
