$33 Registers 1 adult and 1 child


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.


Celebrate the Minnesota State Fair with books from the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.  Learn some basic bookbinding techniques and enjoy some food on a stick (book).  Browse the handcraft exhibits with a quilt (book).  Visit animals at the livestock barn (book).  And take a spin on a midway ride (book).

Please wear masks during in-person classes at Wet Paint. If you are having any COVID or cold-like symptoms even if you have been vaccinated, please do not come to the class. Thanks!
