Spring 2021 OUTDOOR ART Classes

Our days are getting longer and a tiny bit warmer, so Squirrelly is getting back out on the patio for some MORE OUTDOOR ART!  Come join us!  Check out the schedule and fun projects below.  Stay tuned as we plan to add more spring classes, plus some Spring Break art experiences too.

Science + Art: Paper and Volcanoes

It's so fun to see science and art overlap!  We'll dive deep into two projects -- making paper (and painting on it, of course), and building a volcano diorama with clay, playdough, and natural materials, then making it erupt.  Tactile, messy, exploratory, colorful, and explosive -- what could be better?  $95

Choose two Tuesdays or two Wednesdays:

Session A:  Tuesdays, March 16 & 23, 4:00-5:45pm

Session B:  Wednesdays, March 17 & 24, 2:30-4:15pm

Mother's Day Gift Making

This is our favorite way to thank Moms and say "I love you" with art!  Kids will dabble in jewelry making, painting, and other surprise crafts to create three very special one-of-a-kind Mother's Day gifts.  Gifts will be wrapped and ready to give to Mom, or Grandma too!  $105

Choose two Tuesdays or two Wednesdays:

Session A:  Tuesdays, April 27 & May 4, 4:00-5:45pm

Session B:  Wednesdays, April 28 & May 5, *FULL*

Summer 2021 OUTDOOR ART Camps

July 13 - 16, Tuesday through Friday

9:30am - Noon:  Under the Sea

The ocean is rich with life and color and so much inspiration for our budding artists. With this bountiful theme, we'll play with everything from Japanese fish printing to mural painting, gelatin printing, sculpture, and more.  We'll even tie-dye a big towel for special trips to the beach!  *FULL*

1:00 - 3:30pm:  Block Printing, Big and Small

A Squirrelly favorite!  Over the course of four days, we'll learn to design and carve small rubber blocks, learn to print with them on paper and fabric, and then take it to the next level!  As experts, we'll take our time designing a large block and create a lovely collection of frameable prints, as well as a super-groovy t-shirt.  If time allows, we'll also have some fun with making a printing block out of Jell-O and experimenting with layers of color.  As the kids will say, "this is so satisfying!"  *FULL*

Dabble in woodworking, sculpture, and painting on a teeny-tiny scale!  We'll start by building a 3-sided, 2-story house out of wood, nails, glue, and paint.  Then, we'll create people and creatures from polymer clay, and furnish it with handmade furniture, even mini-paintings for the wall.  Come with fun ideas, and go home with a super-deluxe furnished playhouse to provide fun for the rest of the summer!  *FULL*

One, with just a paper towel, rubber bands, and a stapler.  The other, with a pillowcase or cloth napkin, rubber bands, and a needle and thread -- super easy sewing!  Then, get creative with Sharpies or embroidery to make it look awesome.  Show us your unique mask when you're done - share on Instagram at #kidsmakemasks!
