Spring: Just for Fun ART-ventures

Get ready to "create some fun"! Just for Fun Art-ventures leads children on an imaginary tour through the world's greatest art museums, inspiring creativity through exposure to the FUN-damentals of artist's tools, techniques, and art forms, many inspired by the masters. But don't just admire these great works - decorate your home with masterpieces of your own! Draw Oil Pastel Flowers like O’Keefe, create colorful canvases in the style of Matisse, and design upside down and inside out Watercolor Dream Paintings inspired by Chagall. Sculpt Swirly Clay Pencil Holders, create Burlap Landscape Collages, and decorate Paper Mache Boxes. Craft wacky Cubist Costumes inspired by Picasso, draw unique self-portraits, and design sparkling Fabric Wall Hangings. Creatively educational, whimsical, and unconventional, these art-ventures welcome children into a world of artistic wonder. Children bring home beautiful masterpieces each week, sure to transform any home into a gallery!
