Family Art Workshop

"Exploring Color and Texture with Watercolor Paint"
Emily Reece

  • Sunday, March 3, 2013 – 2:30 pm4:00 pm

Each parent and child will each do their own experimentation with this vibrant and versatile media. Watercolor techniques will be explored in a fun way with the creative process as the focus instead of product. Of course, you may have a great time making your experiments into homemade cards to give away to friends and family!

This workshop is intended to give parent and child some understanding of ways they can create with this media at home or even on family vacations. Please arrive in old clothing since the water-based paint could possibly stain fabric.

No previous art experience necessary!

All art supplies are covered in the registration fee.
