Art Break: Fall Skies

Oct 26 - 27, 2023

9AM - 3PM, Ages 7-10

Concept

Find inspiration from fall harvests and the changing of the seasons, leaves falling from trees and the days getting shorter in this two-day program. Together we will create ceramic vases, print patterns and cyanotypes using leaves we collect on a nature walk, paint autumnal watercolor landscapes, and collage forest creatures. 

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. Drop off and pick up will take place at the Evelyn and Martin Siegel Children’s Building, just inside the main Anderson Ranch entrance. Children should come prepared with a snack, lunch, water bottle, and appropriate apparel for a full day of art-making.
