Mask Making & Puppet Theater (ages 3-6)

Each week, children will learn how to make different types of puppets or masks to go along with a story or song for the day. Puppets will be made from fabrics, paper mache and more! In the last week, students will come together to put on a show where all of the puppets and masked characters act out their parts.



City Builders (ages 5-7)

Come together to plan and build your own city! This class is an introduction to urban planning, as children work together to build 3-D Skyscrapers, houses, bridges, libraries, boats, and more. 



Ready, Set, Science! (ages 3-4)

From erupting volcanoes to experimenting with matter in different forms, this class invites children to explore the wonders of science! Your child will be able to test his or her own scientific theories and engage in experiments expanding their knowledge and interests. Students will learn about scientific theories, participate in science projects, and record their findings through observational drawings.



Collage and Mixed Media

This workshop will explore the art of collage and its manymaterials, techniques, and approaches and possibilities for personal expression. Students will cut, tear, and glue a variety of found and painted papers to larger paper and work with media such as water based paint, pencils, and charcoal. They will experiment with color, shape, texture and line to layer compositions and organize images and ideas. Some projects will include three dimensional formats such as assemblage and artists’ books and visits, when possible, with local artists who use paper. Relfection and dialogue will be an ongoing part of the workshop. All levels of experience are welcome. Students bring their own supplies and will receive a list of materials and small tools.
