A Little Art Day Program (ages 7-12)
This two hour class of A Little Art has more time to create more in depth projects using the same types of media used in the one hour version, such as: polymer clay, Artist trading cards, painting with different forms of paint, slime making, tie dye, printing and many more. The name of the class comes from the projects being small in size, hence a “little” art. New and exciting fun projects are constantly being added so the exact same project does not repeat in the same year. All supplies are included and a fun, edible “crafting snack” is included, who knew food could be art too?!
