Kids Create! Summer: Outdoors Painting for ages 2-6 with Adult taught by Ellen Ferrari
June 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am CDT
IN PERSON CLASSES
Wet Paint offers a series of simple, open ended art classes designed for children 2-6 years old with adult taught by early childhood art specialist, Ellen Ferrari. Each class will focus on one art making process. Ellen will use examples of artwork by iconic artists to make connections to professional artists who use these processes and introduce basic concepts, materials and terms. All materials provided (real artists’ paper, ink, paints and tools!) for several projects in each class.
Each class in this summer themed series will be offered both during the week of June 20-24 as well as one Saturday morning over the course of the summer. Each class sold separately.
