On Wednesday, December 26th, children ages 5 to 12 can come to our Art Adventures program from 2:00pm to 3:30pm. In Art Adventures, we check out the artwork in a picture book, then we try to make our own art based on the style. It might be collage or paint or squares that we use. No registration is required, just come on by any time during the session to make our art project of the day.
