Saturday Art Studio

with Instructor Cassandra Ferguson

Join us for our OPEN STUDIO CLASS. Each day we will explore a new material, concept or theme. We will look to Art History for inspiration, explore basic techniques and use our creative imaginations as artists to see what we can create. The artists will have creative decision making over what materials to use, how to use them and what their project will become. This class is designed to freely explore art materials, to learn through experimenting and by making mistakes. And, of course, to have a lot of art fun! This class is wonderful for any child who is a maker, builder, or creator.

All materials included.
