Summer 2016 Kid Workshops

Summer 2016 Kid Workshops

Come one, come all! Summer art workshops for kids are now available for purchase in my online shop. I’m changing things up this year: each workshop is centered on an artist or two with one or two projects. You can sign your child/ren up for one (or more!) workshops–do what works best for your family! All the projects this year are new so even if your child/ren has taken classes or workshops from me before, join us anyway.

Another aspect new this year: I’m mixing all the ages together. These projects lend themselves well to collaboration. I’m really excited to see the younger kids learn from the older kids’ experience AND to see the older kids learn from the younger kids’ spontaneity and inhibitions.
