‘A Very Starry Halloween’ – Children’s Van Gogh Pumpkins (Ages 5-8)
Saturday, October 21 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm$40.00
Join Joan for an exciting new art workshop, perfect for children ages 5-8 who love to try new art forms!
This class will introduce students to the art and painting style of Vincent Van Gogh-with a twist! Students will paint their own wooden wall hanging (either black cat or pumpkin depending on availability) with acrylic paint inspired by Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” masterpiece. Basic art principles such as color, composition, and brush stroke techniques will be highlighted. Art History and fun tied into one!
All supplies and art smocks will be provided.
