Monsters and Mermaids Fantasy Art-ventures, Gr. 2-4
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!

Lions and Tigers and Pigs, Oh My! Art-Ventures Gr. K-1

Animals have been an important subject for artists all over the world since the beginning of time. From ancient caves to the present day these magnificent creatures can be seen in paintings, sculptures, ceramics, mosaic art, fabric design, masks and stained glass. On a wild journey through the animal kingdom, art adventurers discover a multitude of kooky critters--as well as their own creativity--while exploring various techniques, tools, textures and materials. Stained glass giraffes, fabric dogs, ceramic elephants, wooden snakes, colorful dinosaurs, and clay lions with fluffy fiber manes. These are just a few of the animals created during our cool and playful art excursions. Fun facts about each creature are included and masterpieces go home each week. A ROARING good time!
