In this course, children ages 10 and up will use inventive techniques with watercolor, acrylic and mixed media to make unique works of art. Students will experiment and have fun expanding on what is traditionally used in painting, printmaking, collage and sculpture to redesign and explore subjects like self portrait, landscape, installation and contemporary art. 

There will be something new and exciting for everyone as we morph different styles together, and re-examine art making “outside the box”. Creating art is a continual process of problem solving and learning through our successes and failures. We will wrap up each project with a critique and discussion.
