Winter 2024: Monsters and Mermaids Fantasy Art-Ventures
Pay no attention to that fire-breathing dragon! Wielding paintbrushes, brave art explorers journey into a fairytale kingdom, where fairies flit through rainbow skies and zany zombies roam the streets. Encounter fantastical creatures, both spooky and sweet, while conjuring up bedazzling art: Decorate wicked cool witch or wizard hats and sculpt clay witches or wizards on broomsticks! Design colorful ceramic skulls inspired by Dia De Los Muertos and paint unicorn or dragon banks. Craft monster t-shirts and create sparkling castles on canvases. Make hand puppet mermaids, vampires, fairies, werewolves or any creature you can imagine. Using some very magical potions and spells (i.e. materials and techniques), art-venturers experience painting, drawing, sculpting, printmaking, ceramics, fabric art and more. Enchanting two and three dimensional masterpieces are brought home each week. Fun, fantasy-filled art-ventures!

Winter 2024: Breaking All The Rules: Unusual and Surprising ART
In this all-new program, we’ll look at old techniques from refreshing new angles, and combine materials that don’t usually go together to create totally unexpected masterpieces. We’ll also take inspiration from famous artists known for bending the rules of art! Design Textured Pendants using printmaking techniques on clay, give landscape art a new twist by painting on Stained Glass Lanterns, and make Light Bulb Hot Air Balloons. Draw Wanted Poster Self-Portraits, craft Metal-Embossed Knights in Shining Armor, and sculpt Clay Bobble Head Animals. Paint colorful Fabric Collage Dinnerware and vibrant Neon Zebras on canvas. Create Mixed Media Roosters based on Picasso’s paintings, try M.C. Escher’s mind-bending drawing style while designing Tessellation T-shirts, build Magnetic Paper Sculptures inspired by sculptor Frank Stella, and piece together found objects into Assemblage Art like Louise Nevelson. Art-venturers bring home unconventional and utterly fantastic two- and three-dimensional works of art each week.
