ART WORKSHOP

MAKE A FAIRY/GNOME GARDEN
Class size - 14 students. Grades 1st - 5th.

In a container of new grass, each child will create a living garden using plants, sticks, rocks,
berries, bark, and other natural materials. Then they will make fairies to live in these fanciful
houses. Each student can take home their living garden.


FUN WITH PAPER MACHE

Class size - 14 students. Grades 1st - 5th.

Make a snake, spider, or piggy out of Paper Mache. Everyone can be successful with these large projects which turn out beautifully.
This project can take one of two days. If taken as one day, the painting will need to be done at home.


ART MANY WAYS: PAPER MACHE, JEWELRY MAKING, and WILD ANIMALS 
Using Paper Mache we will make a spiders, bowls, or created creatures.  We will also make jewelry using beautiful decoupage techniques.  Finally, we will take a walking field trip to the 99 c Store to create an animal from household and recycled objects.  Children can work through the projects of their choice at their own pace.

Ellen says
“I pick art activities where children can construct using tactile materials.
They need to get their hands messy and take chances. When children
ask me, 'Can I?' I always try to say 'Yes!'”
