Family Fun 
Join us as we explore family through 3-D Family Portraits, your own mixed-media Family Picture, and a colorful clay Family-Connections Beaded Necklace. We will be inspired by pop artist and sculptor, Marisol, author and illustrator of the children's book Family Pictures, Carmen Lomas Garza, and, of course, our own imaginations and family life. Instructor: Rosy Poling

YOUTH STUDIO (AGES 6–10 & 11–14) $70

Kids Paint Corona

During these unprecedented times when children are feeling more isolated from their peers, this class will provide a creative community for young artists. They will have the opportunity to witness and be witnessed as they translate and map their experiences during the Coronavirus, creating a visual diary of sorts. Thoughtful art projects will give children the chance to express themselves visually where words sometimes fall short.
