Abstract Saturdays for Kids! 3 pack

February 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - February 15, 2020 @ 12:00 pm


3-pack: February 1, 8, 15, 2020

This 3-week Saturday morning maker series will introduce budding artists ages 6-11 to the eye-popping world of abstract art making, with a little history thrown in! Inspired by American artist, Frank Stella and his amazing constructions, weeks 1 and 2 will focus on a painting, layering and working with different shapes and patterns and discuss how compositions are made. Week 3, we will create a custom lego-based sculpture as our inspiration for a bright and colourful painting!

Led by artist and ECFTA Arts Educator Eileen MacArthur.

Ages 6-11

$75 for all 3 sessions

Max 15 kids
