ART-ventures with Penguins and Polar Bears (ages 5-12)Embark upon a journey through the Arctic and Antarctic regions to learn about the captivating lives of penguins, polar bears, and other cold-weather creatures. In this fun, art-packed series, art explorers—equipped with a myriad of unique materials, tools, and techniques—set out on an adventure across frozen tundra to discover life in and around the icy waters of the earth's Poles. Sculpt clay polar bears and penguin reliefs. Build sand castle lighthouses and create shimmery sea jellies out of recycled materials. Paint sharks or fish on stretched canvases. Design hats as colorful as the Northern Lights, make gyotaku fish print aprons, and transform plain t-shirts into oceans teeming with creatures. Explore the art of decoupage, collage, stained glass and so much more while learning fun facts about endangered creatures and the importance of being kind to our earth and oceans. Don't miss the Art-rageous fun! Superheroes: Saving Planet Earth! (ages 5-12) Superhero girls and boys soar off on a top-secret mission to save planet Earth using the most important superpower of all: imagination! Like Powerpuffs and Spider Boys, we'll design our own superhero masks, shields, and capes to protect our secret identities, and even build superhero sidekicks to accompany us as we save the world. During these fun and resourceful art experiences, Super Art Heroes create a variety of AMAZING and original works of art using natural, recycled and unconventional art forms and techniques. Paint canvas tote bags, construct your own super-vehicles, and make superhero stained glass! Paint a rocketship, create yarn art on jars, and draw superhero self-portraits. Color ceramic superhero banks, build secret comic book boxes, and explore the art of printmaking while designing bubble wrap t-shirts. Both girls and boys will have a blast as members of the League of Super Art Heroes, saving the Earth with exciting and environmentally-conscious masterpieces.
