Doodlers and mini-doodlers!!
Beginning November 17th and 18th

Kids on Canvas: 6 Week art class. No class Thanksgiving Week. These are no ordinary paintings! Get ready for a Kids on Canvas painting adventure that features fabulous artists, acrylic painting techniques, and most importantly, buckets of fun! Create paintings that explore patterns, include texture, and provide lots of hands-on learning.

Preschool painting experiences are inspired by the great Dutch master Vincent van Gogh, renowned Japanese artist Katsuhiko Hibino, colorful Brazilian artist Romero Britto, and celebrated Cuban painter Amelia Pelez. We also have some super, Picasso-style fun!!
