Kids of all ages explore tactile and abstract art through hands-on learning disguised as fun! Students become scientists in our slime lab! We explore texture, color, drawing, painting, storytelling and much more. Students learn through trial and error while making slime. The outcome objective is understanding that sometimes your first try doesn’t work, but by learning through mistakes a final product is created. The students connect their creations to titles and themes resulting in a gallery showcase for their parents and guardians.

  • Monday-Friday, August 8-12
  • 1-5 p.m.
  • $175

Students learn a variety of dying techniques throughout the week, both wearable and abstract. Explore the work of early abstract painters such as Helen Frankenthaler, who invented a technique called “soak stain” in the 1950s. This technique involved using thinned-down paint to create abstract paintings. Instead of using thick, opaque oil paint, Frankenthaler would add paint thinner until the paint was the consistency of watercolor. The students make both functional tie-dye, such as clothing, but they also explore the realm of abstract art and the organic merging of color to make large tapestries that will be displayed on the wall.
