Schedule and Descriptions

Thursday evening ART pARTies
ART pARTies include all art supplies + a drink and a snack and are limited to 20 students per party.
Little Worlds:  Th June 4, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19

These little worlds are one part snow globe, one part fairy garden.  Students will create tiny creatures, animals, gnomes or fairies using clay and add them to a miniature scene attached to a small wooden base.  Top it off with a glass dome and you’ve got a perfect “Little World”.  SOLD OUT!

Brave Painting:  Th June 11, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19
This is not your average step-by-step painting party!  Nope, this kind of painting takes courage and uses the ideas from Brave Intuitive Painting by Flora Bowley to take students on a painting adventure.  Students will be led thru a series of prompts while exploring different kinds of painting tools like spray bottles, palette knives, and finger prints to let go of perfection in order to play around with paint and colors on canvas.  Each student will create something unique (no two paintings alike!).
Big Time:  Th June 18, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19
"Actual size" is so ordinary...in this party we'll take an average size idea and blow it up to EXTRODINARY size.  Students will use the ideas of artist Claus Oldenberg to draw and paint a large scale image to make into a 3-D stuffed "Big TIme" object. It's going to be HUGE fun!  
Mixed Materials:  Th June 25, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19

Can't choose just one material to use in your art?   We'll take a look at how incorporate a variety of materials (like wood, paints, vellum paper, cardboard, gadgets and string) to form an amazing creation!  What will YOU mix up and make?

Making Multiples, Th July 2, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19

You won’t believe the kind of things we can use to make repeated printed designs – potato mashers, marshmallows, bubble wrap, celery or potatoes, make-up sponges, cardboard, even a rolling pin and shoe strings.  Add a little paint, some paper and a fabric banner and we’ll be printing all kinds of cool stuff!

Drawing:  Th July 16, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19
We will take a look at all thing DRAWING.  But not just sit down with a piece of paper and pencil drawing...We're talking large scale ink drawing, scribble drawings, soft pastel drawings, oil pastel drawing, drawing with an eraser, drawing negative space, and dream animal drawings!!  

Mobile Making:  Th July 23, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19

Artist Alexander Calder was the king of mobiles!  In this party we will create a large center-hung mobile using wire, string, foam sheets and felt to play around with the idea of balance and weight.  These look amazing hanging over your bed!

Open Studio:  Th July 30, 5:45 - 8pm
5 - 12 years old
$19
Do you have an idea for something you would like to make but just need some art supplies and some space to make it?  We'll have stations with all kinds of art supplies available (paints, paper, recycles, oil pastels, wood, fabric, paper mache, clay) as well as supplies from this summer's ART pARTies available for you to make and create some great art!  Students are encouraged to bring their own ideas as we will have A LOT of freedom to choose what kind of art you NEED to make before summer is over.
