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, stain glass, ceramics, fabric art and more. Enchanting two and three dimensional masterpieces are brought home each week. Fun, fantasy-filled art-ventures! Supervision is from 2:45-3 pm.
