This year, we are expanding our programming to include a variety of one hour classes for school-aged children, in a variety of categories. These classes will be in accord with the visual arts standards for the state of Alabama. Each studio in this series will feature a different visual arts activity that engages the kids, while teaching them important skills. This series will be a great opportunity to show how the arts can overlap traditional learning methods. We suggest ages 8 & up attend these crafts, but please let us know the age of your younger child when purchasing your ticket and we can make accommodations. Children under 10 need to be accompanied by an adult.
August will feature 6 classes:
Session A: Saturday, August 6; 11AM-12 PM
Paper weaving: Two crafts in one! Design your paper and learn the basics of weaving.
Session B: Saturday, August 6; 1-2 PM
Woven Turtles: We will make a cute little turtle friend while learning a yarn weaving technique.
Session C: Saturday, August 13; 11AM-12 PM
Foosball Box: We will use math and tools from our crafting toolbox to make and play with our own Foosball shoe box.
Session D: Saturday August 13; 1-2 PM
