Art We There Yet? World Treasure Art-ventures (Grades 4-6)
Grab your passport and climb aboard! In this multi-cultural art exploration program, young art travelers jet from continent to continent, and discover amazing art secrets hidden all across the globe. Borrowing from Native American art traditions, craft colorful Shrinky Dink sun catchers and sculpt “All About Me” clay totem poles. Create flower pots with feet and funny faces, inspired by ancient pottery found in the Philippines. Design intricate, eye-catching Mehndi art gloves in India and bold metal embossing masterpieces in Greece. Make Aboriginal clay masks, and try a special kind of Italian scratch art, called “sgraffito.” Plus, draw African elephants, make t-shirts inspired by Panama "molas" (fabric art), sculpt Burmese marionettes, and decorate festive skulls inspired by Mexican calaveras. Art-venturers experience a multitude of materials and techniques, and bring home two- and three-dimensional masterpieces each week as souvenirs from their travels. Fun facts about each country and culture are included. The only thing kids need to pack is their imaginations!

Lions and Tigers and Pigs, Oh My! (Grades K-3)
Animals have been an important subject for artists all over the world since the beginning of time. From ancient caves to the present day magnificent creatures can be seen in paintings, sculptures, ceramics, mosaic art, fabric design, masks and stained glass. On a wild journey through the animal kingdom, art adventurers discover a multitude of kooky critters--as well as their own creativity--while exploring various techniques, tools, textures and materials. Stained glass giraffes, fabric dogs, ceramic elephants, wooden snakes, colorful dinosaurs, and clay lions with fluffy fiber manes. These are just a few of the animals created during our cool and playful art excursions. Fun facts about each creature are included and masterpieces go home each week. A ROARING good time!
