ArtStarts Explores Series
This FREE hands-on, drop-in workshop series for creative and adventurous families (check!) is held every Saturday from 11 am to 12 pm (except the last Saturday of each month, when they present the amazing ArtStarts on Saturdays series.)
Spark your creativity as by exploring, discovering and expressing yourselves through a wide variety of materials and artistic mediums. Experiment together! Who knows what will emerge?
This Saturday: A Workshop on Chance
ArtStarts encourages participants to be brave and try things, even when they believe they won’t work out. Mistakes lead us to be creative problem solvers! As Bob Ross liked to say: “There are no mistakes, only happy accidents.” Taking a chance gives us the opportunity to discover something we never would have. Come roll the dice with us and explore chance in art making this Saturday.
