Blazing Easels (Children's Workshop)

Dates
Display dates: 
2016: February 5, 12, 19, 26; March 4, 11, 18, 25; April 8, 15, 22, 29

Participants will explore color, design and texture through paint, markers, Cray-pas, collage, found objects and pen. Each week will feature a new activity that will develop skills and allow students to creatively explore the world around them: basic book making, drawing, sculpting with paper and found objects, painting (landscape and still-life), cartooning and more.
