There are stories, songs, arts and crafts to reimagine the animals in the wilderness inside the studio. Children improve their art-making skills as they paint, draw, cut, paste and sculpt wild and whimsical creations in this one-day workshop. Art Breaks are an exciting program at Anderson Ranch Arts Center for kids ages 7-10. They are scheduled to complement breaks in the elementary school calendar throughout the year. Each Art Break has its own theme as it relates to the changing of the seasons and the world around us. Various artistic mediums will be incorporated including ceramics, painting, sculpture and printmaking. Kids will have a safe and inspiring environment to participate in hands-on creative problem-solving activities. They will be encouraged to recognize the arts as a lifelong learning experience as well as an integral part of the past and the future.

Pack your bags and get ready to embark on the artistic adventure of a lifetime!

Each day students focus on one destination and create beautiful and creative works of art specific to that location. Projects include Japanese ceramic tea cups and paper lanterns, Mexican prayer boxes, Italian frescos, colorful mola textiles from Panama, and papier-mâché parrots from Brazil. We also explore the culture, folklore, and history of these destinations.
