Time: 9AM – 3PM
Do you love animals? If so, then look no further! This workshop combines our love of animals and art as we craft extraordinary 2-D and 3-D artworks. We learn how to draw, paint and build our favorite animals in both realistic and creative forms using a wide array of artistic mediums. We make expressive papier-mache elephants, funky perspective zebra paintings, slithering ceramic snakes, gigantic bug collages and prickly porcupines. We take time to learn about the animals we choose to create and how to emphasize the qualities that make them unique in the animal kingdom. Let’s get ready for this amazing animal adventure!
